I have a Macbook Pro running snow leopard OS X. I updated my Safari a few weeks ago to the latest version and ever since I've had problems. It worked briefly and gradually got worse until about an inch of the blue bar had loaded; and the spinning disc carries on for a few minutes... I now get impatient and give up!
Firefox works perfectly, but this is rather frustrating. I have an ethernet connection at university and a wireless connection at home, none of which are made any difference. I have checked for later updates but it tells me I'm not connected to the internet; only to tell me further on that my connection is fine, which I know.

Any help is greatly appreciated! I have heard rather negative things about this version of safari.. I know it's not just me experiencing problems!

Thanks.

There are quite a few people having these types of issues with Safari since the update. To date, I haven't been able to find a solution so I'm waiting for the next release.

In the meantime, I've made Chrome my main browser...I'm actually liking it better than Safari.

Google Chrome - Get a fast new browser. For PC, Mac, and Linux

Ah right, thanks! I'm using Firefox right now and I prefer it too... It just used to be so fast! It's a shame the issue hasn't been addressed by Apple sooner as this has been going on for ages now!
