If you are new'ish to the world of the ipad, you will know by now the basics of surfing but it was quite some time before I learnt my ipad would perform better if I did two things. The first is to frequently squeeze a page small, that way all pages you've browsed will appear tiny. If you tap the X in the top left corner of each of them, they disappear. In my case the ipad I have will hold about 36 in total and when they have all been cleared, the tablet appears to run better, pages load faster etc. Is this my imagination ? you more experienced members. Secondly, is after a few days surfing, I double press the Home button, previous pages appear like the pages of a book and if they are "flicked away", this also help the ipad load quicker. Is this my imagination ? you more experienced members.
