It's really true.

I ran my tiny benchmarks (http://weather-dimensions.com/Dan/JavaScriptBenchmark.html) before and after upgrading my iPad's OS.  The results...

Before:	30M ops/sec	1M sends/sec
After:	150M ops/sec	4M sends/sec

I found some erratic behavior running normal Lively pages -- we'll be tracking that down in the next couple of weeks.

I haven't had a chance to try a new iPad, but the extra processor should make a difference as well.

Think Live Web
