    Default Slow Web browsing

    People have mentioned laggy browsers. I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced just slow browsing speeds. I have very fast Web at home, but the tablet seems to operate like I have dial up.

    Have you ran a speed test to see if it's right?

    Is your tablet slow in other areas too or just web browsing?

    InSetting of device , under the tab applications click on internet and under "Content settings" uncheck JavaScript and see a huge improvement!

    I'll give the javascript tip a shot. As for the other guy, I was talking about the Tab S. Not my home internet connection which works absolutely perfect with everything else that's connected to it.

    Javascript off still doesn't fix the chrome speed problems for me that much. Firefox wasn't much better. I switched to Dolphin browser, much better on several sites I tested.

    7/23 update- Chrome just released an update that seems to fix the problems, so I'm going back to it for now.

    Is it opening new tabs/windows, scrolling or both?

    I did a factory reset on the tablet. Everything has been fine since that.

    I like the Samsung default browser but I find that, like Boat and Dolphin and Chrome it lags while it renders graphics on a web page. It then has to re-render them if you move to link and then come back. Turning off Java Scripting only prevents most graphics form rendering at all so that's a no go for me. I wish that android browsers had a more effective caching system. That might decrease some of the lagging.
