Opening Multiple Chowhound Tabs on iPad Crashes Safari

kathryn | Aug 9, 2012 09:07 PM

When I go to my Chow profile page, I always open threads with recent activity using background tabs.

If I try to open more than three or so background tabs, the browser usually freezes. I end up force quitting Mobile Safari (double click home button, hit x on Safari).

After this when I try to restart Safari on the iPad, it'll try to load those Chowhound pages again and either hang (and I need to reboot my iPad) or take a really long time to load (and the browser is totally unresponsive for several seconds).

Clearing my cache and cookies doesn't fix the problem.

Does this happen to anybody else? I am using an iPad 3, iOS version 5.1.1 (9B206). This doesn't happen on any other site. Only Chow. And I usually lose whatever was "new" after rebooting. This happens even when I have no other tabs open. I think it started a few weeks ago.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
