    Still there for some. Not quite certain it's a bug per se and just some continuously running or stuck script on some page loaded in a tab or something similar related to ads on some page in some tab. For example I often get it when I have MacRumors open (which is a lot of the time), but if I close the tab with that page it will go away (but come back later when I go back to MacRumors and browse around there again).

    Well I just DFU restored to 8.2 and am currently running it au natural. No back-up loaded, no apps installed and I haven't even set a wallpaper or ringtones. Totally stock. Straight onto Safari and *bam*, the dreaded spinning data wheel. I don't know how we can blame websites for this, the internet is the internet and Safari should work with it...not the other way around. None of my other devices, or the Coast browser on my iPhone have similar issues. I checked my father's i5 running 7.1.2 the other day and there is no spinning data wheel there. I think it's pretty lousy that Apple haven't fixed this. The wheel is constantly irritating me.#

    I didn't see the spinning wheel out of the blue in the last 8.2 beta. Running the final release... yeah, it's back. The spinning wheel appeared even starting Safari with no tabs open. I reset all settings and it appears to be okay now. I didn't have wifi issues in any of the previous versions of iOS 8 (lucky right?), but last night I was seeing some strange behavior right after updating our phones.

    Perhaps in iOS 8 they changed so that when using Safari (since it's basically built-in) if there is a live running script on some page or something that's not fully loaded they now reflect that by having the spinner present? I mean it doesn't happen just from having Safari loaded and I'm sure it doesn't happen from just having any sites open. There can be more behind it or something else behind it than simply attributing it to a bug.

    Hmm, not sure. The spinning wheel certainly gives the impression there's a bug somewhere even if there isn't. Why would the script not fully load? Wouldn't it abort? I get where you're coming from though. Maybe.
