Automatically Close Tabs in mobile Safari

Mobile Safari has a feature that automatically closes tabs. It reveals the ill-conceived nature of the interface as a whole:

The problem: tabs pile up indefinitely. This is because there is no reason to close a tab after you got from it all you wanted. However, when you create a new tab, the old ones vanish from view entirely, and don’t get in the way. It’s just that once every two months you’re horrified by the list of open tabs.

Apple’s solution: symptomatic treatment. Let’s clean up the list the user is horrified by! That is, delete user data for the sake of the pretty picture.
