No doubt Safari browser is one of the best and fastest things Apple introduced in their iOS for iDevices back in 2007. After so many years, the Safari experience on iPhones, iPad or iPod Touch just keeps getting better. However, the narrow wall between iOS firmware and users prevent us to perform certain functions which we’d love to, on our iDevices. For instance, downloading media and files, launch more than 9 tabs on browser, or being able to save, edit or re-store tabs right on Safari browser. Never mind. Jailbreaking brings all of these capabilities to your iPhone without hurting your pocket. Here’s a list of ultimate Safari Browser addons for iPhone.
