If you’ve ever wanted to finger Safari for iOS the way you can use gestures with Safari for Mac OS X, you can do so now with “FullScreen for  Safari” for jailbroken iOS devices!

FullScreen for Safari

Developed by Yllier, this handy little tweak adds numerous native multi-touch gestures for iOS Safari. You can two/three-finger swipe up, down, left, right to – with your personalized settings – do such things as create an empty tab, go directly to bookmarks, close the current tab and toggle fullscreen mode.

Official app description from Cydia is as follows:

Use Safari like never before!

Offers a FullScreen mode. Also makes Safari a real multitouch browser.

Adds many new Gestures like two and three finger swipes, three finger tab, shake…

Assign different actions to the gestures like switch tabs, go back, go forward, create new tab close current tab, and so on..

With this, Safari is a really intuitive and cool web browser.

Note: FullScreen has been tested to work on all iPhones and iPods running firmware 4.0 to 4.1. It also works well with other Safari extensions.
