View Full Version : Why does Safari always reload when I go back/forward?

I almost switched from Chrome to Safari but one big thing is keeping me from it. For some reason whenever I go back or forward in the browser Safari feels like it needs to reload the entire page. It's really annoying having to wait before I can start scrolling and using the page!

That's why I came back to Chrome again :(

This is the only thing I really dislike with Safari. I switch to Firefox or Chrome when it really bugs me, but usually go back to Safari after I forget how irritated it made me.

It they ever fix that I'll switch to Safari. At least until they polish Chrome's performance which is highly likely.

Thats because you've got it set to have that stupid sliding animation where the pages slide on and off. If you change the trackpad setting of "swipe between pages" to 3 fingers, it no longer does that. Going backwards and forwards is lightening fast and you know longer see that tedious animation.

I must say that this is pain in the ass for me. I hate it. But I am still using Safari. Might give Chrome a try.

A word of warning though. With two fingers, a swipe to the right brings you back and to the left brings you forward. But with three fingers, it's the opposite.

That's true but I prefer it that way, I upgraded from Snow Leopard and that is how its always been. You swipe left to go back and right to go forward.. as it should be. That is before all this "natural scrolling" nonsense came into existence.

Eh, I tried this and it still reloads every page. Oh well.

Actually, it doesn't reload the page. You have to press cmd+r in order for the page to be refreshed... It's just the blue thingy in the address bar that flashes, but it does nothing.

Seems like they would rather not refresh the page since it in theory would load faster.

This def needs to be a toggle.

It doesn't reload the page from the internet. It reloads the page from memory.

I understand the frustration. When you are quickly browsing around, especially on forums, you expect to go back then be able to scroll down immediately. As it is, you must wait a second for the page to "load".

It doesn't always do this, though. Some pages seem to be programmed to allow to come back "unscathed". It may be an HTML programming issue.å

Apples own website is the WORST offender of this "feature". But so many websites react to the browser with this STUPID refresh effect. We want to go back to where we WERE, not back to the top of the page we are coming back to.

No other browser does this. There should not need to be a workaround, sliding more or less fingers than the default setting, etc...

:apple: Apple PLEASE MAKE SAFARI NORMAL!!! Forget more features, just make it work the basics correctly and to a standard. PLEASE!!! :apple:

In addition to venting here, please submit a bug report to Apple. I will be doing the same.
