First try a better browser. When the first ICS update came out, I was disappointed that the user agent string was no longer available in Settings. I downloaded Dolphin HD and the stock browser now gets about as much use as my iPad 2.

Dolphin is a nice browser... You would think the built in browser would be the best... nope.

Just rebooted using Dolphin... I am very frustrated. I don't think it is the browser. It is a crappy product....
Asus used to used to have good products. I am taking this pos back.

I got the update shortly after my post yesterday and like you, I haven't any crashes or reboots. I do have the odd popup telling my if I want to close the browser or wait.

Asus has not contacted me in 48 hours. Eee Pad Transformer Prime has rolled over 3 times today, and camera has random lines the preview. When it crashed and rebooted the line a went away.

I hope Asus can help....

weird, I've been on mine non-stop for the last week or 2 and I've not had any issues at all (other than self inflicted foolishness)

After it rebooting 3 times yesterday, I did a factory restore. Hope this helps...

I wonder why some people have more troubles than others. Don't they all have the same hardware/software combo?

.15 should be put in a few days to address the rebooting problem.
Mine has been reboot free for 1 day since the factory reset.
Time will tell.

I haven't had any reboots under .14 but the browser still freezes once in a while. Hopefully .15 fixes that as well. At least, ASUS is making firmware updates unlike when I had bought my ASUS A730 pocket pc.
