    Safari 5: Slowing down/crashing
    Hey guys,

    I got Safari 5 when it came out but I just cant use it, whenever I do it slows my Mac down so bad it sometimes even freezes. I cant scroll down a page smoothly its really jumpy and it gets even worse until it just freezes. Sometimes it will just get really slow and ill get fed up and close it or sometimes it freezes the whole OS and I have to switch it off by holding the power button. I now use Chrome instead cus it doesnt do that to me and no other web browser has done until Safari 5.
    Ive also looked for software updates but nothing is available.

    Any ideas?


    Thanks

    How about some specs on which version of OS X you're running, the model and year of your Mac? Next question: Do you have a backup? Time Machine?

    Regards.

    Ive got Snow Leopard and the most recent version of it, I cant check the exact details as my Macbook is at home. My Macbook is a Macbook Pro but I got it in December 2009 so it isnt the newest Macbook Pro model.

    I dont have a backup but I reformatted Macintosh HD a few weeks ago.
