Hello,

Safari really loads slow. The icon bounces up and down and then I get the "circle of death."
It eventually loads but it seems almost too long. I don't have that problem with any other app. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks!

Is your OS and Safari as up to date as possible - Apple have released a couple of updates for Safari under SL lately (now at 5.1.9)?

You could also try re-setting Safari.

what have the Roman's ever done for us?

Helô Nicky,

Mae'n wych clywed gan rywun o Cymru!

My Safari is up to day with 5.1.9 so I guess that's not the problem. I guess I'll just deal with it. I little inconvenience doesn't bother me since everything else works great.

Diolch!

Ok, but do you have this problem with any other browser? Let's compare, um, apples to apples here.

Hello,

I took your suggestions and tried Firefox and Google Chrome. I didn't like either one. Safari offers better and safer extensions than either of these two. Actually, I noticed that I only have problems with Safari loading slow is when I first boot the computer, other wise no problems. Hmmmm!

Thanks for your advise.
