This new layout is better IMO, but there are a few other problems that kinda bug me

Unpopular opinion, but this new layout is better. I don’t even remember the old layout since I’m not even a long-time iOS user (this is my first iPhone). I looked up the old layout or the “cascade” layout and it looks more painful to me than the new one. By the looks of it, it’s definitely easier to miss a tab you’re looking for in the older version, and then you will have to spend like 10 more minutes scrolling to find the tab you’re looking for. Sure, it may be “faster”, but it’s definitely harder to find the certain tab you’re looking for if most of the tabs are only viewable by a little area at the top. This app is mostly fine except for a few problems I get from time to time. Today I’m having a problem where I was trying to look at some Google images and then I tried to look at more but it was just stuck on loading. It wouldn’t even finish loading. This happened only on like 2 searches thankfully though. I’d probably give it a 95% since it has some minor lags and problems.

Apple…you are the worst!

I try not to update my iPhone but thought I needed to in order to access a certain feature. In this new update you have changed the layout of the tabs for Safari. Instead of being able to scroll through the tabs seeing the top of the page, you have changed it to boxes - without giving an option to have it scroll down through the page top tabs as it was previously. As Apple has done ever since the unfortunate passing of Steve Jobs, you consistently screw up the functionality of your apps -lowering the bar every single time for your computers, phones -all of it… The whole kit & caboodle.
When my contract on this phone runs out most likely I will opt out of the Apple world. When Apple does updates (or what they might consider an “upgrade”) it is now a downgrade. The Apple developers & creators have absolutely no ability to understand what good functionality is - they just tag along with the rest of the world. As I mentioned, since Steve Jobs passed - Apple has lost all their creativity and individuality and user friendliness with their products - definitely the cost of Apple products should be slashed in half at least because what used to be a worthwhile purchase… A unique and well functioning purchase in comparison to other technology products… That time has long passed. Your products are just one very average kernel in a pile of low quality rice.
Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave.

New Grid Layout is a step backwards

The new GRID view for tabs is horrible and counterintuitive. It’s a big step backwards. The former stacked/cascade view allowed users to browse dozens of tabs in a single view quickly and without needing to scroll much. Swiping tabs closed or pressing the x in the upper right corner was effortless. I barely needed to move my thumb. Now I see microscopic little tabs in a grid layout that shows maybe 6 tabs open at best. Then one must scroll endlessly through a dizzying array of little rectangles while trying to distinguish the barely visible print. It’s very hard on the eyes. The ability to see the full pages are pointless anyway since the text is too small to read in grid view. Also, closing specific tabs now requires excessive hand gymnastics over all parts of the screen. You need to squint to find the tabs you don’t want and then stretch your fingers to wherever they are, making sure you aim carefully to click the tiny X. This is especially cumbersome if using your phone one-handed. This grid layout feature might work on a large iPad but is definitely not smart for a cell phone. I heard Firefox might still allow the cascade view. Will be downloading that next.
