The new iPad Guided Tour for Safari gives us (as far as I recall) our first look at the tab interface for Safari on the iPad. Pretty slick. At least for the one tab they switch to, it appears that the iPad won't have to reload the page whenever a new tab is loaded. Could this be true? I assume the iPad has more ram than an iPhone/iPod, so it should be possible. Has anyone seen or heard anything about this from the hands-on previews? In the same vein, any word or thoughts on whether tabs will be able to load in the background? When I'm visiting a slow site, I often like to load individual articles in tabs so I can continue reading the main page while they load. On the iPhone/iPod, this doesn't work since tabs don't load in the background, but again given the additional power of the iPad, maybe this will change? Background loading and not having the reload when switching tabs would be a huge upgrade in usability for mobile Safari. Edit: added screen grabs of new interface from Guided Tour video.
