    swirling ball
    every now and then I see the multicoloured swirling beach ball and understand it is indicating the system resources need more time/space to perform functions. so I wait it out.

    a few times while in Mac-forum, I would see a turquoise swirling ball also.

    im not sure what is causing the resource usage to have the swirling ball. usually don't have any other apps open.
    is there a way to check this out?

    The blue swirling icon is a sign that Safari (or your browser) is waiting for the Internet to respond or finish whatever it was trying to do. 99% of the time it's out of your control, except to upgrade your internet connection.
