gavza says "not sure what joseintendo is moaning about. Joseintendo says the link takes about 10 seconds to load, but 30-40 before it's done. I wish I got that kind of performance. Safari on a MacBook Pro is SLOOOW. I also have a dual-boot PC with Firefox under Windows XP and/or Linux. They are quite snappy, no loading delays there. The Mac sucks on response time. Yet, both machines are running off the same wireless router. So what's the difference? Firefox on the Mac doesn't seem any better.

josenintendo, this would be really great info to have in a bug report. If you could get a sample of Safari when its beachballing, that would be great too. Thanks!

The above link takes about 10 seconds to load for me, but then spinning beach ball for about 30-40 before the blue gradient fills the URL entry bar; I'm plugged in AC with a "hi-res" Powerbook G4, 1G ram.

Not sure what josenintendo is moaning about. Tried loading: which has a lot of comments, and it took ~8 seconds (Mac Pro), with no spinning beach ball. With the latest Webkit, it was ~5 seconds. Could it be faster? Of course; faster is always better, and Firefox 2 does it in 3-4 seconds. I hope that Safari in Leopard is faster still, but I'm happy with Safari 99.99% of the time, and I file a bug on the odd occasion when I notice a problem.

David, Can you please reply to these "inaccurate people’s powers of perception"? If Safari is so damn better in performance as you say, please ask your Apple managers if some 0.x updates can be released. I doubt it will happen.

SSOOoo let me get this straight. You're amused that people feel Safari is slow as balls (enough to have this article on Digg) and can't do anything about it? So their perception is flawed. Safari has still become the most unstable (and slow!) browser these last few years, and it's really starting to suck that what was once an amazing web browser with unparalleled standards support is slowly becoming a bloated, unreliable browser with unparalleled standards support. Don't think it's slow? Try loading a page that does a lot of post-load JavaScript stuff (a large Digg comments page, perhaps?) and witness the rainbow ball spin for upwards of 30-60 seconds. Oh, and the form element formatting being missing since day one is utter horse ****. Well, at least you're amused. ;)

ha ha ... count me as one of the fooled -- I swore it seemed faster. Hmmm, maybe I could make up a fake app that 'speed up' all apps and make some money! Hey, speaking of digg, you ever notice Safari crashes regularly when you try to drill down in digg to look at user comments on diggs? I get the spinning beachball of death virtually every time -- the only site I go to that Safari chokes on regularly.

hyatt, sorry for misusing this place but i found out no other way better than this (no help at the irc). i have been using safari sice it's begining and today i found out something that is really bothering me: address bar auto-completion in-line. i have lots of bookmarks and i visit hundreds of sites everyday. with this behavior safari tries it's best to help me by auto-completing what i am typing in forms, searchs and in address bar. the thing that drives me nuts is the fact that when i am typing something common like '' in the middle of the 'wikipedia' it is already auto-completing IN-LINE and, more obviously, giving me a droped-box with others sugestions. for sure it is a feature for some but for others it is a bug. is there a way to disable this function and have only the droped-down-box?

You know David, I understand your point of view. However, I am a bit frustrated with the lack of progress end users have seen in Safari 2.x to date. Aside from the 4 minor updates since Tiger released, where has the development been? No 2.1, 2.2, 2.5 release? I know that WebKit has been updated quite a bit since Tiger's release so how about filling us in on this?
