I went on a movie streaming site and a bunch of "popups" came up, like suddenly I was in the appstore or some completely different tab. The real tab I wanted to go to is probably somewhere opened too, but what do I do now?

You were probably switched to the App Store app through a URI scheme. The web page will still be open in Safari. You can either switch back to Safari normally using the home screen or through multitasking.

@Blub Double-press the home button, swipe to the app if necessary and tap it to switch to it. – grgarside Mar 1 '14 at 15:20
