    No kidding. The first thing I noticed after installing iOS 9 on my iPad Air 2 is Safari is actually snappier. It loads much faster. It's like iOS 8 Safari on steroid.

    But I don't remember Apple had boasted about Safari performance in Keynote, like I remembered when they did on Mavericks. Did they talk about Safari numbers? Or all these are simply the effect of content blocking?

    It indeed feels faster and more responsive, and even more so with a content blocker installed (obviously).

    But even without blockers, the sporadic reloads and basically every other problems I had (however small) have practically vanished. Granted my personal use case is not exactly what some would call "heavy", but for me it's working splendidly.

    I don't remember them singling Safari out in the Keynote either, but it must be due to the other under the hood optimizations. Or something else, I really don't care as long as it works!
