I have never liked Safari’s two finger swipe back animation. It is unnecessary and slow, and forces the previous web page to be reloaded (this particular part will change in OS X El Capitan).

I have used an iPhone ever since they were revealed to the world in 2007. Since then I have never used a case (or as I like to call it “rolling naked”).
Whether you agree or not, the iPhone (especially the 4 and 5) are fantastically designed devices, and I never wanted a case to cover that up. In addition, I think most of the cases on the market are down right ugly or simply too big.
