    We have an issue with our ipads (they are all in kiosk mode) that after afew days of use they get really sluggish. All they do is display a simple webpage where people sign in for a gym.
    The ipads are looked into that one webpage and are brand new with no apps or anything. Question is why they are slowing down after a few days of usage?

    If we reboot them they are fine for another couple of days... but we would really like to not have to do that every couple of days, since they are spread out it takes awhile to get to them all. Is there any way for us to reboot them from a server or something? or even better if there´s a way to get Safari to stop being sluggish after a few days?

    Use a different browser instead. Chrome doesnt suffer this issue.

    Is that true after the rewrite of Chrome to use the native webkit? I could easily be wrong on this but if they've piggybacked on the core engine of safari for iOS they may be inheriting all of its bugs too (although they did tout something like a 70% performance increase by adopting the engine).
