If it's due to more SW bugs in iPads than in laptops, can this be due to iOS being relatively immature as an OS compared to OSX and Windows?

Or are there some HW restrictions in tablets that make the SW more difficult to be made stable?

I have no experience with or knowledge about iOS, so my guess is as good as yours, sorry.. but my guess is yes, either that or maybe the browsers for it do things slightly differently. At any rate, I think unless software makes assumptions about hardware/memory instead of checking first, "weak" (but otherwise not faulty) hardware should not lead to a crash.


There are also some iOS Limitations that i recently ran in developing a RESS Server that specifically hits some limits. I Think most of it is documented here: https://developer.apple.com/library/safari/documentation/App... (see section "Know iOS Resource Limits")
