i've noticed lately that some sights, especially flash-heavy sites such as hulu, are running slow lately. this happened maybe in the past week or so, and the only thing i can guess is that it might be related to updating my software from 10.8.1 to 10.8.2. i just bought my macbook pro, brand new from the apple store, on september 11th this year. i haven't put many files on it, so it shouldn't be a memory issue. i'm a new pc-to-mac convert, so i don't know if there is a simple solution i just don't know to try or what. i've tried googling and haven't gotten any clear results though. i have an older macbook running on snow leopard at my office, and right now that's running faster than this one. i don't want to go through the hassle of setting up a genius bar appointment if there is a quick fix someone here can help me with.

Is it just a particular web browser?

If you haven't already done so, try changing your DNS servers on your Mac and your router to OpenDNS servers. This will show you how: Why am I being redirected to other sites? (http://guides.macrumors.com/Mac_Virus/Malware_FAQ#Why_am_I_being_redirected_to_other_sites.3F)

it's happening in both chrome and safari. also, if there is a image with a link, sometimes nothing happens when i click the link, unless i do a command click and then have it open the link in a new tab. this also happens in both browsers.

i just tried that and it didn't help.

other info - i'm currently house-sitting for a friend and i've had this problem both here and at my own house, so i don't think it's an issue of the router or wifi.
