I've just bought a new iPad, but it's so annoying when I have to click the arrow on the top left of the page to navigate back and forth using Safari. I wonder is there a gesture for navigating that I'm not aware of?

Safari on a standard iPad does not have a gesture for returning to the previous page.

Sadly and strangely the three-finger swipe doesn't work for back or forward. Not sure why they wouldn't have enabled it. – Matthew Frederick Mar 18 '12 at 6:21
Thanks. I wonder is there a way to work around this problem? – Chan Mar 18 '12 at 7:25
