    Was getting sick of web pages having to reload every time I had more than one open so started messing around and it appears liken the Internet cache is being stored in ram or something because I cleared tHe cache and now can have a couple pages open at the same time without having to reload.

    Incidentally this fixed a couple other issues I was having with YouTube videos getting stuck and not playing as well as one game I have that was really choppy for some reason clearing out the Internet cache seemed to have cleared up the choppiness. Only thing I can deduce is that Internet cache is stored in ram, can't see why else it would fix a game independent of the browser.

    Anyways if performance is starting to get sluggish on you go into settings and then safari and clear out history, cookies and cache, it's kind of a pia to have to do this every so often but it makes a big difference.

    I'm going to try this since I've been noticing, as with you, playing some videos in YouTube sometimes is very choppy. My initial thought was, perhaps that it's just my WiFi connection, but we'll see :confused:

    It works but it seems after an hour or so of web browsing you end up back at square one. But if your having issues this definitelymseems to boost the performance of the device. I will probably make a habit of doing this after every web surfing session from now on.

    What happens if you don't check back on a website for say 20 minutes?

    Ive noticed that if you switch between webpages fairly quick, like 5 minutes, it doesn't reload...but any longer and it reloads which is very annoying.
