OK, let's get it out there. The iPad web browsing experience is sub-par. And it's because of Safari. The main reasons are twofold: 1- there is a serious bug with the page cache in iOS Safari 3.2 (it's set at a miserly 26 KB, yes K) - which means if you ever open more than one page at a time, returning to the previous page will almost invariably cause a time-wasting refresh and page re-load. I honestly have no idea how Apple can refrain from posting a 3.2.1 just to fix this extremely annoying issue. 2- there is no way to open a page in a new tab in the background. So, if you are perusing a news site and want to mark 4-5 articles to open in separate pages, well, you'll need to go thru the whole gratuitous page opening animation every freaking time. And, with the aforementioned craptastic page cache, returning to your original page will more than likely cause a refresh. It's annoying, and it makes the surfing experience so bad I've stopped using my iPad for surfing. Yes, I know that there are other browsers out there I can use. They are so fugly I have a heard time bringing myself to do that... Easier to just use my laptop. Seriously Apple, just release a patch. Even if it isn't in your pre-planned release cycle. Just do it!
