    Same here. I was amazed last night while surfing how fast Safari was. Instant loading of pages on wifi. I also have Safari sync enabled in iCloud.

    I've been extremely happy with a Safari on both my iPhone 5 and my iPad 2 with iOS 7. Safari seems very fast and stable.

I don't use Safari all that much, but I have one important use for it while at work, and I just can't use it like this. Is anyone else seeing this, and does anyone have any suggestions?

    Turning off Java helps a little, but many pages don't work right then. Looking for a better solution.
    Works great for me. Faster then ever.

    Safari on iOS 7 makes my iPad 3 and iPhone 4S feel like a sub 100$ chinese android tablet.

    Its utter ****.
    thank god I use Chrome. Too bad I cant set Chrome as a default app, because whenever I click on a link in mail everything slows down and becomes as unresponsive to input as a crazy republican.

    Safari is extremely slow and unresponsive on my ipad 3 and 4S. Makes it feel like a cheap chinese android tablet 5 years ago. Apple screwed this one up badly.
    I hope they fix it in the next update. Because if this is the way things are going my next phone or tablet will not be of the Apple brand.

    unless they make it possible to change the default browser

    I have read this entire thread, after trying everything suggested relative to my issues with safari running un- usably slow nothing has worked, I have even shut off everything to do with iCloud, backups and such. I am seconds away from taking out my frustrations on this iPad2 with a 5 lb sledge hammer, it will give me more satisfaction than trying to figure this stupid bug fix out..... why do they always have to F**k things up when they are working fine. My primary use for this iPad is surfing internet, seeing that I can't use it for that any longer I will have to repurpose it, maybe a cutting board.... The all new iSlice ... Oh,and by the way, in my honest opinion, I think the new interface sucks, the icons and other associated symbols look like something that Fisher-Price used on one of their toys in the 70's ......... I can hear you shaking your head in disgust Steve (R.I.P.)

    This fixed mine, the only fall back is all your personal settings are changed, but safari is working like new,

    Ok I had to go to - Settings - General - Reset - and I - Reset all Settings

    Hi all,

    I think I worked out why turning off iCloud sinc makes safari faster. I happened to look in my bookmarks folder on my iPad and there were the same 3 pages repeated 2950 times. I went to my PC favorites folder and there was the same. I'm not sure if it was an update on the iPad that caused it or something on my PC but once I deleted them all and let my iPad sync with cloud, safari was back to normal speed. I almost binned my iPad due to this issue. Glad I worked it out. ios7 ain't that bad now...

    Check the favorites folder in bookmarks. If you are synced to cloud then it may be full and slowing down the browsing. Somehow I believe the ios7 update duplicated entries in the favorites folder. Delete them on your Mac or PC that is synced, allow the iOS device to sync and my sluggish, unresponsive safari came back good as gold.

    Clean up favorites folder on the iOS device. Safari on iOS only has a small amount of memory allocated to favorites. Updating ios7 somehow duplicates favorites entries. Delete from main computer synced to iCloud as deleting from iOS device is 1 by 1 and slow. I deleted 3000 favorites in my PC favorites folder. Let the iOS devise sync with the clout and it was back to normal. Simply turning of iCloud sync will not solve if you don't delete the favorites folder.

    Clean out favorites folder on iOS device. Check to see if iOS update has duplicated items and overfilled favorites folder. I deleted all items and Safari was back to normal.

    Oh, thankyouthankyouthankyou! I waited a long time to update my iPad 4 to iOS7 because a friend complained about his slow Safari after his update. I finally did it because push was no longer working with iOS6. Now I have push and speed. Thanks!

    I have a week old ipad mini with retina display with 128gb of storage. After update my Safari Browser is sometimes useless. It has a hard time DL imore website. Really pisses me off. Chrome is working fine but this just sucks. Before the update my ipad was flawless. I don't own a Mac so this problem as explained above this thread doesn't affect my problem. Tried shutting Safari off icloud sync and same problem. Anyond with any possible fixes PLEASE give a yell.
