That is positive indication that the problem is on your device… as there isn’t anything being sent over the wire when you are just typing stuff into a dialog box (ie: it is not network or web site related). The ads can have a profound effect though, as they send animated graphics and other crap that will just suck CPU cycles, thus slowing it down. It is much more pronounced on small mobile devices where capacity is more limited than on a real computer. Blocking ads will definitely help.

On older computers, one other trick is to disable graphics… not sure if that is possible on very many mobile browsers though. Stopping other stuff running in the background will also help a lot… most people don’t realize all of the stuff running without them knowing it, and the CPU cycles and network activity they are wasting.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: I also have a iPad mini that we got for free… only thing I use it for is to store pictures and check the weather :)
