How to Search Tabs in Safari on iPhone and iPad

Normally, when we browse the internet, we tend to open dozens of webpages. As a usual practice, people do not really delete the webpage tabs they open on their browser. It has one good outcome though. You can find your desired webpage easily. If you are using an iPhone or iPad you can search pre-open tabs on the Safari browser.
