What is wrong with my ipad air?

When I browse, write emails, my stupid browser keeps resetting on me if I switch tabs! Is my ipad brokwn? I can't write emails or even post sometimes, cause I lose it. What is wrong?

I get that sometimes. But I got it with my older ipad 2 and 3, also. Dunno what makes the tabs refresh if you switch tabs.

It's a bit of a pain.

I always assume it's down to a lack of memory. Try closing unneeded tabs and clearing out apps from your recent apps.

If that doesn't work, try a restart.

Make sure you're using latest iOS version.

Yes it's a lack of memory. Doing those things will help.
The most recent iOS improves things somewhat.

I get that eeeeeveryday on my iPad2. So it seems 1GB RAM of the Air still does not suffice. Hope Apple would be less stingy and put some more RAM in the next iPad. What's the point of 64bit if RAM stays below 4GB anyway?
