Default Questions for iPad/iOS users

Bought and iPad and its a smooth device and all but I'm having trouble adjusting to it. First off, is jail breaking worth it? I need a good flash ready web browser, currently using puffin but its so freaking slow that the flash isn't even worth it.

MOST irritating and infuriating thing I cannot stand is that leaving the web browser or even a tab unattended for SECONDS is a big no no because as soon as. I click on the tab again, it will automatically refresh. wTF? I mostly do homework on it(webassign) and when I spend 15-20 mins learning to do a practice problem only to have the tab refresh and load a new problem, sht pisses me off because I cannot check my solutions.

Apple heads, suggestions?

The screen is nice though, so vibrant.

Never had the tab refresh issue before so I can't comment on it. Jail breaking brings more headaches IMO. Low batter life, shaky performance, app invompatibility, it isn't worth the hassle IMO. Some live by it, but I don't.

As far as flash browsers are concerned, I can count the amount of times I needed flash in one hand. And maybe once did I actually NEED it. But I understand some people may need it more. There's usually an alternative link to whatever you need flash for. Perhaps two years ago you were f*ked, but almost everything has iOS compatible content so you may have options.

Get google chrome for a browser. Your refresh problems are in the settings somewhere. With chrome, it acts more like a normal computer.
