    I am having a few problems with Safari. It freezes often, won't load pages fully and is just not working right. I check for updates often, and even checked to see if my Internet connection is working properly which it is!
    Any thoughts?

    Have you tried the "shut the app down fully and then restart or reset the iPad" trick yet? To do (apologies if you already know):

    Fully Close an App: Double tap the Home button (or do a 4-finger swipe up) to reveal a row of icons in the multi-tasking bar. Press and hold an icon until they all start to wiggle and you see a red circle with a minus sign ("-") in the top left. Press the minus sign to fully close the app. Don't worry, it won't remove the app from your iPad, just from the iPad's resident memory.

    Then...

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    If that doesn't help, try this last step...

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    This procedure works a lot of the time. Of course, if it doesn't work for you, holler back and we'll take another stab at it.

    Thanks for the advice. I had tried the things you mention before posting and I guess I was hoping there was another trick to try out.
    It has been a little better in the last day or though, so I will keep my fingers crossed that it stays good.
    Simon.
