Constant beachballs in safari…what a dog.

I love and have used safari for a long time, but recently the beachball things is just crazy bad. And ok, on my white 2gb mem imac, but on a new macbook air, cloned from said os (imported settings, etc.), and I get beachballs on 5 open tabs, with minimal flash….shhh…

any idea on what I should do? (and no I am not going with chrome)

The problem may be inherited from the cloning process. Here's what I would do: Make a good Time Machine backup of everything, use the install key to erase the drive on the Air, reformat, reinstall Snow Leopard, and during the reinstall when it asks, use the TM backup to restore. Let's see if that speeds things up.

Cloning for sure. OWC Techs advised doing a clean install and if you need to import backups, use Migration Assistant as cloning simply brings corruption onto the new drive hence your problems.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

I always thought that a clone of one computer wouldn't work on another of a different type??

Depends on the hardware configurations.

I don't recommend cloning from one machine to another. Using the Migration Assistant would a better option with two machines and different hardware.

At this point, there is no way to know for sure what was done. Sounds as if the op may not really have "cloned" to the other machine as a clone would not "import settings, etc.".

For the op, I'd recommend resetting Safari.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

couple of things, first of all many thanks for your reply.

I actually used migration assistant off the cloned sparsebundle image of another install, so it's not that I 've actually used the clone itself on the air.

I will try resetting safari, which I guess means clearing all caches (and btw 560 mb cache? isn't it a bit two much for safari to cache the views in history say?).

But other than that I don't see how I ve mucked about with the install to the extent that I would have this issue so pronounced (it's petering out btw, but still safari isn't up for much work and lots of tabs open).

Good thing the newer safari is just round the corner in 10.6.7.

I also have the impression that speed/efficiency wise safari extensions are not yet optimized, I ve noticed a considerable degradation of performance with extensions on and I don't have that many....

Anyway, very much looking forward to the new update to sl like I said.
