iPad vs. iPad 2: RAM Performance in MobileSafari Video

TiPb has posted a nice video demonstrating how the iPad 2's increase in RAM makes MobileSafari perform much better.

The original iPad tends to "kill" background tabs whenever it runs out of available memory, which can get pretty annoying if you use the iPad primarily for web browsing. The iPad 2 performed flawlessly and had no hiccups when browsing. Also the dreaded "checkerboard effect" — where significant lag would occur before Safari could render the web page content — is nowhere to be found. Scrolling in Safari is smooth as butter, and gone are the days when switching between tabs meant loading the entire page from scratch.
