1) Trying to move the cursor will sometimes also move the page in the opposite direction at the same time.

2) It can't keep up with my typing, even on a 4S

3) You'll, click a link, it will register, the task bar will drop down, and then Safari thinks about it and says "no... I've decided you actually don't want to click that link". This is actually from the Safari Sucks archives, but is too classic to ignore.

Is that bug still around? I don't think I've seen it on my 3GS but remember it not so fondly from my original touch.

Oh yeah, and it's made extra annoying when you've nailed just the right pixel on an ultra-resolution touchscreen.

Is anybody else seeing the MacNN forums reverted to the serif font on iOS 5's Safari, with the style preference having no effect?

That's not happened. But I've had outgoing links lead to blank pages.
