The vast majority of iPhone users in the world have been taking this for granted for a good six months now! I just installed the latest beta of iOS 5, and besides really loving the new notifications, my number one most amazing feature is something GSM iPhone owners have had since the introduction of 4.3: freakin' fast Safari! I knew about the improved performance of the browser that we never got---but since we didn't get it I didn't know what I was missing. Not that Safari was slow before mind you--it's one of the big reasons I dumped my Droid. But the speed difference is just amazing, loading non-mobile pages is a breeze now, maybe a second below iPad browsing speeds! And it didn't take new hardware to accomplish! So laugh GSM users about something you didn't need iOS 5 to experience....but Verizon owners: this is one of great features you're going to get and you are going to love it, even if 6 months too late!
