Well hello there. 
I happened to have skipped the introduction post I keep getting nagged about by this bleeping computer. ^.^ 
I came across some word games in y'alls wonderfully helpful website I have been stalking. Very intelligent people here. I do enjoy a game thread, if ya' didn't know.
Was hoping, perhaps someone could enlighten me on an issue I've been having.
I know enough about technological advances to find word games but not enough to be in the know / considered tech savvy. o.O
... There's some song title games I'd like to play (more efficiently).
I use a tablet.
Apple iPad.
1st gen.
Got it when it first came out.
( Everything is synced on all apples - got phones and laptops - i just like my 'crack pad' as I like to call it.)
Was a gift, from my ol' man. He engraved the back, "The world will end. When caught in a web." 
So, these song games.
It crashes.
I don't look at Facebook, it crashes.
You tube? Crashes.
Other high media web pages, crashes.
(no other applications running in background. Cleared history and cookies, still effs up.)

Doesn't happen on any other apple.
But every other apple is compatible for ios 7.

Kinda reminds me of a self destruct button.

... It's not horribly disrupting but, I do wish I could view a few things on the crack pad that, crashes instead.
It's worse than slow Internet.
What could be looked at in two minutes ends up being ten due to constant crashing. 
Any thoughts? 
Should I live with the crashing?
Is it normal?
Would I be better off with an iOS 7 device?
Am I stuck with the option of investing a newer version?

... Did I just answer my own question?
Thanks for hearing my thoughts.

P.s. Could it be Internet connection issues?
Hasn't been synced in a while. A possible reason?
Any other theories I could try?

Edit: Moved topic from Mac OS to the more appropriate forum at the request of staff.~ Animal

We can move it if needed.

As to your issue, it certainly could be due to the fact that it cannot be upgraded to the most current iOS version and thus the most current browser version for iOS. Does the iPad crash when using other apps besides the browser?

Have you tried rebooting it? Or even resetting it (i.e. erasing everything on it and restoring from a backup)?
