    Have all my router settings right, i think...using opendns on a connection with a fast ping time (between 5-15ms on speedtests) and 8meg download and 3 upload.
    The speed of the net on my ipad2 isnt the issue, i.e. opera seems fine (and net is perfect on laptops, ps3 etc)....but in safari (on ipad2) an awful lot of times it hangs half way trying to load a page, it'll hang for up to a minute...but if i refresh the page, and this goes for any page, it loads instantly.

    Never happens on a google search...only happens when i click links to a site....and only in safari

    I am wondering could it be something to do with the new reader feature....which i really like btw, and my main reason to want to use safari as my main browser

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Have you tried completely closing the app in the multi-task bar? (Double press the Home button, press and hold any icon in the bar until they start to jiggle, then touch the top left-hand corner of the Safari icon to completely close it. Then press the Home button to close the multi-task bar and try again.)
