    Okay, so when you open a new window and click back into the window you were in, SOMETIMES the page completely reloads. Other times, it just goes back to exactly what you were looking at without a reload.

    What's up with this? It's not a deal-breaker or anything...just mildly annoying, but annoying nonetheless. It's really the only thing about the iPad that prickles me a little bit...but again, I can live with it if need be.

    It's the way safari handles the memory management. Use iCab or Atomic.

    This is how Safari works on the iPad.
    There are a handful of alternative browsers that maybe don't have this issue.

    I tried Atomic and had same results, although less. I think it is Memory management combined with the way some sites work and update.

    Tried atomic, and although it was better with the memory management thing, it had some quirks I didn't care for (wouldn't open some links, etc). At only $0.99, I'm not really complaining.

    I looked at icab, but the reviews for Perfect browser were more favorable/abundant. The UI is nicer as well, so I went with it.

    I have to say, it's a pretty big improvement over both safari and atomic. Safari has its memory things, and is kind of sluggish. Atomic feels like a beta; incomplete. Perfect is snappy, and has a number of cool features, not the least of which is the ability to render pages like a desktop browser (so you're not redirected to the mobile version of the site you're looking for). Easily worth the $3, in my opinion.
