Apple’s Safari and their new tab system

I’m struggling with Apple’s new Safari on both iOS as well as Lion. My issue stems from the reload every time you go back to a previous tab. I’m a compulsive multitasker and love to have MANY tabs open at once. When I go back to a tab that I was using I:

1. Don’t want to have to wait to see information that was there just moments ago (entire page refresh)
2. Even more frustrating, I don’t want to have to refill a form, or renter something in a text box that was almost complete.
3. Don’t want to have to force a quit just because Safari is reloading a tab it should have had cached.

This has to change! I’m a good multitasker when given the opportunity. The new Safari is far from allowing me to do so.

I do like how Safari on my iPad has gone to the tabbed format rather than having to exit and choose a new window. But again, it’s not working the way it’s supposed to.

I’ve switched to Chrome for the time being. We’ll see how that ends up. Safari, I want you back!
