(that last one is so annoying, it's as if Android is just that impatient, and reminds me of the dreaded Clippy from Office 97)
You're lucky then. I experience a browser crash everyday I use my iPad. Very annoying. Of course I don't get any messages like in Android. Safari just closes on me and the crash log will show up if I go to Diagnostics & Usage

Funny you should say this. I experienced a crash exactly like the one you've mentioned a couple of months back on my iPod Touch 4th gen. I had to hard reset and when I turned it back on, my app icons where missing. Doing a restore from backup fixed the icons but even now, that iPod is acting mighty wonky. Unfortunately, since I need to keep it on iOS 4.3 for an abandoned app, there's nothing I can do about the wonkiness.

Just because iOS has worked very well for you so far doesn't mean it doesn't have its share of problems and glitches.
