Have you done the upgrade to 8.1? I seem to recall that that was supposed to help somewhat.

Cool. I have a friend who's afraid to update. Should I tell her to stay on 7. or update?

I haven't spent too much time on the iPad today since the update but things seem to be working fine. I updated to 8.1 because I was hoping for better wifi performance with my AppleTV and I wanted to take advantage of the "continuity" features with Yosemite. If this isn't a reason for your friend to update their iPad2 then I would suggest sticking with OS7.

Safari and Mail still miserable, 8.1.1 didn't help with that. I'm seriously thinking I'll replace my iPad now. <bleh>

Damn. That sucks. I guess i will learn from your experience.. no upgrade for my daughters ipad.. and I should probably go ahead and sell it with iOS 7 on it. Then upgrade to a newer model. Yaaaah. more money for Apple

I see Chris Breen says this on the subject.

As we've said over and over, if you have an older device, wait to update until you've heard reports of how they perform with the new operating system. That way you can update based on the experience of others.

iOS7 was released September 2013, it's barely over a year old. It made my iPad2 run perfect and without any complaints. If Apple didn't cancel the signing of 7 last month there would be no issue .... we could just reset and downgrade.

What does "signing" mean?
