Mine only crashes on avforums.
Same problem on my iPad 1.
The iPad error reporting system claims it is due to low memory.
I use the task switcher to kill any programs I am not using since I hate the tab reloading curse that follows, so it is rather surprising to me that safari now has memory problems with almost nothing loaded.
Safari has become the memory hog that is the curse of iOS like IE was the curse of windows?
Can't wait for next April... Hopefully apple will finally give us 1GB of RAM.
Settings...general...diagnostics and usage (all the way at the bottom of the general menu)... Diagnostics and usage data.
I know it is there, yet I still have to hunt for it every time.
Provides a list of the files generated every time a fault occurs. 90% of mine are low memory crashes where it lists mobile safari as the process consuming the largest memory, and that it was "jettisoned".
I am starting to think that it isn't Just that safari is a memory hog, but that iOS5 has a memory leak. Last crash, I killed every process, and I still only had about 3 mb of memory free, and the used memory was like 84MB. Reset the ipad, loaded safari, and my used memory jumped up to 150 MB, with 80mb of memory free. Or maybe it is that I still don't get the Apple memory terminology. Wired vs unwired? Active vs inactive? Free? Huh?
I remember the good old days before "multitasking" was added to the ipad... The os was much snappier then. Now it just feels bloated and cumbrrsome. Guess that is the price of using 30 month old hardware.
Looking forward to ipad3 and 1024mb...
I have put up with it for a while now on my iPad1. A few days ago I deleted Safari History and also Cookies and Data. It has not crashed since although I must admit I have not pushed it as far as I might have in the past.
