    safari seems similar to me, but maybe abit faster yes.
    theres more of a difference on my iphone 4, but it might just be my internet playing up...
    4.3's very stable though, and while there isn't many great features for me, i do enjoy having my orientation switch back.
    its like having a hug with an old friend the first time you do it again :D

    I see zero difference in 4.3 in browser speed.

    browser is MUCH faster in 4.3. Sites like Fark.com with lots of text in threads loads much quicker. A definite improvement.

    Hopefully it will be out for all later today , or tomorrow- early as some are predicting.
    The Apple servers are already going to be slammed on Friday- let us iPad 1 owners have it now !!!:mad:

    Overall, it's somewhat faster; I do like the enhancements to AirPlay, iTunes Home Sharing and the function selector for the switch next to the volume controls. Besides that, nothing new to get hyped about, unless I really missed something important.
    It's an upgrade worth doing, I just wished there was more to it.

    The multitouch gestures seem really cool if you manage to turn them on (jailbreak required)

    Unless you "need" a low grade camera, or are a "gamer", I think the software improvements of OS 4.3 will keep a lot of iPad 1 owners whom surf, read, listen to music, etc. from having to buy an iPad 2.

    A jailbreak is not required to activate the multitouch gestures. You just need to have Xcode installed and set the iPad to "Use For Development" from within the Xcode Organizer.

    I have been running 4.3 for about a month now and have not noticed a whole lot of differences between 4.2 and 4.3. Home sharing is really nice, especially when you have a large library.

    Also the multi-touch gestures are nice. However, they are only available if you use your iPad for development like stated earlier.

    I got my iPad with gestures enabled from the guy that sold it to me. Tis is my first ipad. I wanted to restore and sync my stuff so I lost the gestures and I really missed them. Turns out you don't need a dev account to turn them on. I installed Xcode and started it up. The iPad shows up and you click the "use for development" button. It will ask for credentials but you can x out of Xcode at that point. The gestures get turned on without needing to sign in.

    That;s great to know. I will have to share that with some of my friends who did not want to set their iPad to my developers account.

    Great news! I'll try it later today. Can I use the current Xcode or do I need Xcode 4?
