My tabs keep refreshing on Safari. Meaning i get a blank page that is reloading when i switch between them :confused:. I dont have many apps in the background, just facebook and settings.

Running latest iOS never jailbroken.

Annyoing especially when i am using my 3G connection and it wastes data.

Edit: doesnt happen constantly but sometimes.

Edit2: happend right after i edited this post with the above lol.

Yeah, it sucks. I think its based on how many tabs you have open. So if you have a lot of them open, and a lot of ram used up, then it reloads.

Download iCab, it doesn't do that. Has a few other cool features too like full screen

It's a pretty painful issue. I think they've restricted Safari's resource usage too much.

One piece of advice though is not to open another tab while one is still loading. It stalls the loading process if you do that.

I'm assuming this is the same problem found on Safari on the Macs as well.

It's something to do with the multi-processing. Can't quite remember the details.
