iPad 2 & iPad 1 Web Browser (Safari) Memory Test

Tuesday 31 May 2011 @ 7:06 pm

Today I took another video comparing iPad 2 to iPad 1 in a web browser (Safari) memory test. This memory test shows the improvement in iPad 2 in term of web browsing experience.

iPad 1 has only 256MB RAM, on the other hand iPad 2 has double amount of RAM, which is 512MB. Therefore, clearly there’s one winner in this test.

Surfing the Internet on iPad 1’s Safari web browser often will run into a reloading problem when switching tabs. Most of the time, a previously visited webpage will need to be reloaded when we are switching tabs back and forth because iPad 1 has to refresh the content of the webpage when it runs out of memory.

This reloading issue won’t happen in iPad 2 whether we are switching tabs or switching between apps, thanks to the 512MB RAM.

Check out the video below to see the difference in performance :-

    There are other browsers better than Safari. Dual Browser is the most use.
    I actually have no complaints about the app. It’s simple, it does what it’s advertised, and does it well without crashing (although that depends on how many apps you’re using). I’m a multitask-er and I’m so glad Dual Browser exists in the app store; now I stream my cricket matches on one side of the screen while I catch up on the news every morning  I don’t feel the restriction of having just ONE display anymore that being the iPad
    Download Dual Browser for $1.99 if you have an iPad you won’t regret it if you’re a multitask-er like me or just need two websites open at a time!
