Switching tabs using jquery.tabpane is considerably slower. I've found out that this is due to setting the hash property in window.location For some reason browsers now are tripped into some sort of repaint event when the hash changes:

window.location.hash = 'foo';

There are some other people on the web having the same problem. The recommended solution always was not to maintain a hash navigation then.

Hashes have been set in the navigation to facilitate browser navigation (back and forth buttons) when switching tabs. I'll disable this feature as its benefit doesn't outweigh the performance issue in the user interface.
