I am really impressed with the browser, so far, too. :) Glad you're enjoying it!

Can you have one tab on the tv and another in the gamepad?

Unless there's something I'm missing, not really. The TV pretty much reflects whatever's on the GamePad with two exceptions: you can put up the curtains to not show anything on the TV, or when you're playing a video you can have it going on the TV and do other stuff on the gamepad at the same time.

Great, that prevents people from seeing what I'm doing on Redtu...nevermind.

So, say, if I play a youtube vid on full screen I can browse other pages on the pad? Is that like that WiiU demo where the guy uses the TV button to send the vídeo to the main screen?

Well, the TV button only triggers the universal remote functionality of the Game Pad (which you can use even if the system itself is off). Any video you start in the browser automatically starts playing on the TV (unless the curtains are up) and will stay there until you tell it to go away (with a little tool bar that pops up on the game pad), which is how you can still browse while leaving the video up on the TV.

Got it, thanks.
