Go To URL Faster on iPad

Another useful way to do this is to turn on the Bookmark Bar and add a bookmark to the end titled "New". First bookmark any site and name it New and make sure to save it in the Bookmarks Bar (you can just as easily add it to the Bookmarks menu and place it at the top when you organize your bookmarks if you choose not to use the Bookmarks Bar). Next, choose Edit from the Boookmarks menu and find your "New" bookmark and replace its contents with the following JavaScript code:

javascript:window.open('','');

Click Done, and Done and try it out. New windows abound. And for an additional, and helpful tip on making items in your bookmark bar open in new windows, you can use the same JavaScript code but with the site URL you want to open in the first set of quotes as in this example:

javascript:window.open('http://hints.macworld.com','');

I just add bookmarks for my most frequently used web sites then go back and edit them adding that small piece of code. Then anytime I choose one of these bookmarks in the Bookmarks Bar, they open in a new window.
