    i can manage a force quit for safari eventually once the macbook catches up with my mouse

    then rest of mac is ok
    and restarting safari after force quit - safari works ok - till next time it hangs every few days or so

    This happens to me as well every now & then...but not real often. I don't really worry about it too much. I just force quit Safari...and reopen it. Sometimes I restart/reboot the computer if I haven't done that in a while...maybe that helps as well.
