Just tried it on my 4S, but I still have iOS5.1.1 on it. The music contines to play. I don't have a device here with iOS 6 on it, so I cannot be sure if that may have something to do with it. Try a reset, hold the sleep/wake and home buttons together until you see the Apple logo and then release. See if that helps.

Thanks for the reply. The music only stops only the site is fully loaded. Sometimes it takes a few secons for it to stop, but it stops. I did what you suggested, but the behaviour continues. If it doesn't happen with iOS 5, then it must be something to do with iOS 6, which I find quite surprising. I would really like to know what is happening here.

FYI. I updated my 4S to iOS 6 last night and have tested this again and I cannot get it to duplicate the behavior that you describe. I go to Music, start a song, go to Safari, go to the NYTimes web site and have gone through 2 songs so far and the music doesn't stop.
Try going into Settings, Safari, and clear history and cookies. See if that changes the way your Safari behaves. You also don't mention if you tried the reset that I recommended. Let me know what you find out.

It seems to have to do with if the we page has media content on it or not. I've had a similar experience on the Verge on the iPhone 5 review page, for example, because it has videos on the page. The problem is that the audio switch from Music app to QuickTime player continues even when the QuickTime application is not running/streaming. So, it will just sound blank and continue to switch the music 'off' into its static pauses mode while it awaits the content that is not currently playing.
Please fix this Apple.

It could be that because there are videos on the page (which do not play or start dowloading unless I choose to do that) the music stops just in case. I don't think it should, and I don't understand why I have no option to change that.

I have the same problem. It does that on my home page (iGoogle) which has multiple widgets including some that have integrated videos. Previous iOS versions did not behave like this. It would only fade out your music when you started playing a video/song, not after loading it.
This must be a bug, I can't imagine it's a feature anybody would want. I hope Apple fix that quickly, I'm changing my home page until then, it's too annoying.

It happens with anything that has the ability to play audio, instead of getting possible audio conflicts the iOS just stops the music incase any audio comes in from the new source. If you could have multiple audio sources at once that would be a annoyance that most would not want to see.

You are correct. There is definitely something on the website causing this. Another example is tsn.ca. Which pauses pusic annoyingly every time. I still think this is a bug though... Safari should deal with this stuff better

I really like these pages that state problems. It seem that they are all over the internet. JUst one thing is missisng . . .the answers. You would think Apple would like to keep the customers happy by solving these problems. I know maybe somes one at Apple would read these pages and poslt a reply the SOLVES THE PROBLEM. Oh, that would be too easy, too much common sense.

Apple won't fix it until they want to. It willbe called ipad 4G or iphone 5s, etc, etc. No matter what you do. This "support community" exists via apple' site just so they can gather ideas for next marketing strategy. :)

If you hold the home key & ask Siri to play now playing while in Safari, you can then open Safari and the music will continue to play. This is the only way I've found to bypass it.

I figured out this will happen if any of the pages that are open in safari on your phone are open to a page that contains media. Note this means any page regardless of whether it's the one you are viewing. So if you go to a site that has media, then open a new browser window and go to a page that doesn't have media and then open iTunes and play a song...when you switch back to safari, the music will stop. If you close the first browser window and try it again...the music will continue to play.
