    I have 1 ipad 2 and 1 playbook. I used 3 ipads cause 2 were my friends and i was testing it out last week to see if they had the checkboarding, in which they both did.

    Thats when one of my friends today told me to use atomic browser on ipad. He said no checking boarding at all. He said its not a complete ram issue with ipad 2 but safari issue. He said ipad 2 should be able to easily handle 9 browser tabs no problem even with a pathetic 512MB of ram.

    So im going to try out the atomic browser for a couple days and decide there. If it wasnt for the damn checker boarding, i love my ipad 2. But that to me is a complete deal breaker. its like buying a car with half a paint job. No one in their right mind would find it acceptable.

    Atomic has to reload pages with only two tabs, though it doesn't use the checkerboard pattern, but instead displays a grey background. On my ipad 2 is Safari the faster browser. YMMV

    This has been a very... amusing thread.

    "I hate my Ipad"
    "This Playbook is great"
    "I hate my iPad"
    "This Playbook just died"
    "I so love my iPad but.... I so hate this browser"
    "I so love this other browser..."

    Ipads, and Playbooks, and Browsers, oh my.

    They keep coming out with things to try and trump the iPhone 4 and the iPad but when it comes down to what they can do there is no equal

    I was seriously thinking about switching over to the Playbook but no 3G or 4G totally turned me off.
    I guess it's iPad for now.

    My interest in other tablets will remain as long as there s no flash for iPad.
