    Well, I've been reading the forum for a while now and I always saw people posting about how when you have one page open in safari and you open another page, it'll switch pages and load the second page and when you go back to the first page, safari will reload the page, however in my case, when I own multiple pages and click on one, they don't ever reload... They just act as if they're all open like a tab would.

    Basically what I'm asking is, is it normal that when I have multiple pages open in safari, I can click on any of them and it'll go to that page without refreshing the page like it normally would?

    Multi tasking is there for selective Apple apps, just not multi tasking for all apps. In your case, it could just be a very fast reload making it seem to be still open, or it is open because its an Apple app. Even when multi tasking comes out in iOS 4.0, it will only be available for programs with a specific Apple code imbeded.

    I have noticed that when I go from one "page" to another, it does not reload. Only if I clear the cache and have multiple pages open will it force a reload.

    Here's a YouTube clip of me showing the pages not reloading and staying in their current state without reloading.

    Click here for YouTube video.

    Anyone else's iPad do this, too?

    Sometimes mine reload, and sometimes they do not. Not really sure what causes it to do either.

    Well then, I guess I got lucky because mine NEVER reloads. It always just stays as it was when I left it.

    I now no longer really have a need to buy another browser for tabbing features.

    In the end I always come back to Safari anyhow, I never stay with one of the aftermarket browsers.

    You are definitely lucky....the automatic reloading is extremely annoying at times.

    I'm surprised that it's not doing it... It's amazing not seeing it reload after every page switch.

    The page reloading also annoys me. Has anyone found out if it's possible to switch this off or why it does it? Would rather reload manually than wait for auto reloading when I've only switched away from a page for a few seconds. Thanks

    I finally solved my iPad 2's tab refresh problem, it was so frustrating that I'm posting the answer here for anyone desperately searching Google for solutions. I switched Settings > Safari > Open New Tabs In Background to OFF. When I got my iPad I guess the setting was set to ON, turning it off worked for me. Good luck!
