    And the apps where background execution makes sense or need it, will support it, so where's the problem?!?

    Who cares if it restarts, if it happens instantly, and exactly the same spot where you left it? Have you actually TRIED multitasking on an iPad or iPhone? Well I have, and sorry to say, but it works much better than on the Touchpad. As long as it's something simple, like playing music in the background while surfing, then the Touchpad can keep up. But if it's something more complicated, I'd prefer an iPad.

    On an iPhone or iPad you switch between different browser tabs/windows instantly, as well as between the browser and another application, but on the Touchpad? Forget about it. Swipe up... Wait while it gets all the cards in order... Choose different card... Wait while page loads... Waiting... Ah! Page ready! Excellent, let's zoom in... Hmmm... Wait while webOS sharpens the page cause you just zoomed in.... Arrgh!

    If you don't mind all the waitings and slowdowns (and don't have too many cards open!) then it's fine, but saying that the Touchpads multitasking makes it somehow faster or better at everyday tasks is like, as Judge Judy would say: "Spitting on me, and telling me its raining!"

    hm, I have a Fritzbox and really:

    Tochpad: only 24 MBit/s
    iPhone: 54 MBit/s

    What can I do?

    But that can't the only Problem, or, because here are more telling that the Browser dosnt work that fast, or?

    I can't though. And if you're coming from iOS and Android, chances are you'll have a hard time getting used to it.
    Ive used the others.

    My TP web browser appears to be just as fast as the android ones Ive tested, and only slightly slower (a mere second or two, at most) than the iPads (1 and 2), but, admittedly, I did load a flash site.. the iXX's didnt have to deal with it, obivously, and this was likely the reason for it being faster on those sites.

    So, I don't have to "LIVE" with anything - there's no compromise for me - the speed is just fine, and we have flash, natively, as well.

    There are, of course, limitations for using ANY pad for web browsing, as most web sites are set up for mouse use and not touch screen use, but, that's a different story, and SO why the "pad" craze really is, IMO, really just an "iANTHYTHING" craze (if APPLE makes it, its the best and nothing else will do), and the PC isn't going anywhere soon.

    Apple is number 1 in the tablet game.
    HP had a huge sale to ditch all of their tablets.

    Hmmm, maybe this relates to the quality of the product?

    The only people that say that are the ones that actually believe the Apple FUD against Flash.

    The issue is with Javascript but not because of threading but because they used an old Javascript engine.

    First you are inferring a Kia is a crappy car, they aren't. The new Optimas are really nice! Love how people get hung up on the little things...

    Again the point is it doesn't matter what the cars are, when you are limited by your environment it doesn't matter how fast you could go as things become equalized.

    The browser is slow. It and its components are poorly tuned. My single core, 10 year old lightweight laptop running fedora opens webpages faster than the touchpad.

    This is what I'm looking forward to Android on the TP for the most. A better browser...

    My TP (oc'd to 1.7) scored 2,960 on the sunspider benchmark.

    My desktop pc (pentium 4, winxp pro sp3) scored: over 580 using Firefox, over 590 using Chrome, and over 10,000 using MS IE.... ???? My Coby Kyros Android tablet, using Opera Mobile, scored 21,552 (running custom Rom, Android 2.3.4).

    I've only run the test once, I'll run it again later when I have more time. The IE and Android scores really surprised me (assuming a higher score=better/faster).

    I think you should have clued in that wasn't the case when your desktop scored 580. The score is in ms(milliseconds) so a lower number is better.

    If Javascript is one of the problems, can't the javascript updated with a newer version?

    Isn't it a Plugin that can be replaced with Preware?

    I've had my Touchpad for 3 weeks now and I don't have any problem with the browser speed. Is it as fast as my desktop no but I didn't expect it to be. Is it as fast as the ipad or ipad 2 probably not, but in my opinion being able to easily customize my device is worth an extra 2 seconds to load a web page.

    I got 3853 on my TP
    285.6 on my 6core PC

    Anyone else notice the browser (stock) getting stuck on certain sites? For example, I have the A&E TV site on my favorite. When I click that, the browser starts to load then gets "stuck" with empty page and the blue progress bar 1/3 or 1/2 way done. I have to physically click the refresh button (made easier by the Thumbnav patch) to load the page.

    I suppose if had an iPad to compare to, (I'm the only one I know besides my girlfriend with a tablet of any type), then it would matter. But the reality of it is, either I'm satisfied with sub-par browsing or the second or two difference doesn't make a lick of difference to me.

    For example, I just opened up cnn.com on both my PC and my TouchPad at the same time.

    I never go to that site on either device, just happened to delete all cookies, registry clean on my PC, etc etc.

    The difference in load time on my PC, which incidentally is an Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6000 @ 2.4GHz with 3GB RAM, and my TouchPad running at 1.7GHz was about 1.5 seconds.

    That's fast enough for me.

    Is there no possability to replace the javascript engine with a faster one?

    Going back to the multi-tasking discussion, iOS as an operating system handles multi-tasking, but you are very limited as far as application multi-tasking. Remember, when you run an app on ANY platform, from webOS to iOS to Windows to MacOS, the application is running within rules defined by the operating system. If the operating system pauses an application when you don't have it as the "active" application, that is ALL about the OS.

    Now, with iOS, the operating system itself DOES allow for select functions that will run in the background. This would be like you paying a kid to clean up the yard rather than doing it yourself or paying a professional landscaper. Because you are not paying top dollar, you don't pay much attention to what the kid is doing, so SOME things get done, but you don't expect the sort of results of a professional.

    With Android and webOS, applications that go into the background really do run back there. There may be a few cases where the application does NOT continue to run back there, but those are the exceptions, while with iOS, it is the exception for an application to run in the background.

    The result is that iOS may seem faster, but that is because it has been intentionally designed not to do too much at once. The Touchpad DOES need some work, don't get me wrong, but from a strictly technical perspective, iOS is as good about multi-tasking as Windows 3.1 was. Of course, if you only do one thing at a time, that may be preferable to YOU, but many of us do a LOT more with our devices than the majority of the people using an iOS device.

    I have nothing other opened - one browser card is the only card I have.

    With all Tweaks and CPU at 1,5 GHz I get a Score of 3060 - but its still totally slow!


    Asus eee Pad Slider is much faster in surfing (getting 2260 Score) and like iPad1 or a bit faster. Also I testet the iPad 2 - this is far away the totally fastest Browser experience! - but scored with 2060 only a bit better than the Asus - but browsing is really faster.


    Also my Touchpad is not that slower what you can think when you hear 3060 to 2200 - it loads pages often in a double of time!!

    So which is the best of all? But even if Ipad or Androids are the "hottest gadgets", who knows what new great inventions will show in the future. Technology is always advancing and not all people can catch up to it,.casino online
