    When it works it is faster than iOS 5. However from time to time the browsing will get stuck and the loading icon just keeps spinning. Anyone had similar issues?

    I am running GM on my new iPad.

    yep, this was happening in Beta 4 too. I hoped they had it fixed for the GM but nope.

    It happens all the time when you have multiple tabs open. Tap a link or do a search ( seems more often when searching?) progress bar stops moving.

    Stopping/refreshing fails to work as well. Open the same link in a new tab and it loads fast as anything. you have to close the problematic tab as it never seems to come back to life.

    Also if you switch out from Private mode and open Safari again. Anything you press will briefly freeze then load.

    I hope apple can fix this soon. It should be a high priority bug to fix.

    iOS 6 gm safari is faster than before. Just try rebooting about 2 times and it should be fixed. My safari is fine.
