My Nexus S was OTA-upgraded yesterday to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 from 2.3 (Gingerbread), and I'm still finding my way around. One problem I've noticed has been web browser performance, particularly scrolling.

When I load Google News and scroll it up and down with my finger, or when I swipe fast enough that it has enough momentum to continue scrolling for a while, scrolling is very jerky instead of smooth like Gingerbread was.

Is this a known problem, and if so is there a fix planned or a workaround I can use? This sounds like a trivial display problem but it actually makes the browser difficult to use for reading and scanning pages.

For what it's worth, Google News on my Galaxy Nexus is smooth like butter, no matter what speed I scrolled at. It might be that the Nexus S processor is a little underpowered for the new browser. Have you tried any other browsers? – Al E. Dec 22 '11 at 1:51
