    I really noticed this on my iPad. Big improvement. Very happy with the performance.

    I just installed iOS 6 beta 3 on my iPad 3 and although I haven't really played with it much, I don't see much change.

    I installed iOS 6 on my iPhone and iPad today and I was shocked by the speed increase!! I thought I might be imagining it because I hadn't read about t but it is defiantly faster!! Prob the best improvement in iOS 6....

    That's great to hear. But can you open more than 8 pages?

    iPhone 4 - No change in performance. Chrome seems on par.

    On my iPad 3 it seems to be a little slower and I get a lot of crashes! Did you guys restored from backup or did a clean installation?

    Best to do a clean install then restore from back up or iCloud.

    I definitely agree that Safari is quicker on iOS 6.

    Another change I have seen, which speeds up the navigation process, is that when you open up a new page / tab, it now opens right next to the page you are currently viewing rather than at the end of the stack.

    So, if you are viewing page 2 of 5, for example, the new page will open in slot 3 moving the others along by one.

    Hope that makes sense, because I feel like I'm doing a very bad job of explaining what should be a simple concept.

    :)

    Much faster. I wish the tabs were bigger on the iPad though. Hard to hit the X button at times.

    I've had a couple of times where Safari would suddenly be unresponsive and I had to close it since going to the GM of ios 6.

    I don't notice any speed difference, about the same.
