    It's a common problem. It's not just the samsung tablet. It's the honeycomb OS.
    The only browser that do not have this issue are the Opera browsers.

    But opera seems to crash (at least for me) often. Especially when trying to watch anything on comedy central.

    Same here with opera mobile.

    Edit: opera zooms in when I select text box, such as isername and this forum text replies, cool and no lag, but when I leave box to click on submit or login the text is erased. Arg!

    Found Maxthon mobile for tablet. No KB lag and np text loss, but jittery if JavaScript is on for flash.

    I've found that de-activating the auto-correct function of the keyboard greatly improves the performance. Both on the stock Android keyboard and the Samsung keyboard.

    That'll be awesome. The browser typing lag is the biggest complaint I have about my Tab at the moment. Can't wait to get the update.

    Glad to know it's not just me. Has anyone else had trouble clicking on OK or Cancel pop ups?

    I can confirm that Touchwiz seems to fix this.

    I was pounding out lengthy emails earlier for almost 30 minutes before I realized just how fast I was able to type on the thing.

    Edit, just saw they linked to the article. But yeah, it's crazy fast now. Also, websites like Google+ (which i used to hate viewing on tab because of how slow they were) practically fly. I don't know what Samsung did, but it's really nice.
    I'm a tech junkie with a weak spot for Good Music, Good Beer, and Excellent Coffee.
