A4 chip in the iPad is supposed to be slightly faster than the 1GHz snapdragon in the HD2, Nexus 1, etc. I can't remember details but I saw a report that claimed about 10% so nothing extreme and likely not that noticeable in most scenarios.
Yep. I notice that Safari crashes quite frequently on graphic-intense sites, esp. if it's doing something like loading, and then I decide to quit and switch to another window. Maps is killer slow, maps render very slowly and it takes longer than it used to to locate my position. It has gotten to the point where I can't use it on the fly, like if I'm coming up to an exit and I'm not sure if it's the right one. Other stuff just hangs for a few seconds. It's not the end of the world, but it's just kind of annoying.
