I'm surprised there are so many problems with the Safari update. I haven't had any issues and Safari is even faster, snappier than before - and I have Verizon's "high speed" DSL at 3 mbps. However, I did do a hard reset after each update (Safari, iPhoto and Aperture). Perhaps that made a difference??

I didn't like it at first either, but after a few times of use I began to love it. Couldn't imaging going back now.

OMG i though i was alone in that one, if i have 2 tabs open and open another one it will crash or sometimes if i click a link/new window when i open it again safari resumes to the old tabs most of the time (not the last ones i open) and works fine again.

I'm having the same issue - only the domain shows up until you cmd+l. I really don't like this but there's nothing in preferences & nobody seems to have found a defaults write for it.

Early adopters will always be the ones to have the most issues. I always wait a bit and read the results after a release- software or hardware, and then when it seems most of the stuff is worked out, usually in a couple months, I take the plunge.

As far as Apple's product quality, I would say they are still the best even if they appear to be going through a rough patch since Steve's departure. I do believe that the recent restructuring will make a very positive difference and bring back what we love about Apple. If I were you, I wouldn't worry too much about buying an Apple product. Even if you don't like your experience and decide to go back, the resale value alone is worth trying it out. Try reselling a Windows machine for half of what you bought it for a few months out of the box, and you will see what I mean.

Good luck to you!

Did you try deleting Safari preferences, clearing cache and restarting? I definitely do NOT have such a problem.

Thank you for your support. You just hit the nail on the head. I guess it's what i wanted to hear. I will sit back and relax a little... Easier said than done! Time... and users will tell. To be honest, I can't wait to have my first mac and too bad things should go with Apple for me not to give it a try. I hope there will be no turning back for me, but that depends on them.

Yeah I totally purged everything related to Safari. It feels like it's by design rather than a bug, extremely weird it's only happening for some people.

have cut down the frequency of the crashes by turning off and uninstalling all extensions. It has cut down the crashes quite a bit for me. Before doing that it would crash with simple things like clicking on a link or just changing pages.

So far I'm seeing the same results, which is a relief.
I have same better issues. The annoying flickering GIFs look fixed. However, I have a new issue, of some random artefacts appearing. They are usually square or long stripes with some moving dots inside. Really strange. I tried to disable AdBlock but that didn't help any. I think it might to do with DivX plug-in I installed recently, but I am not sure yet.
I uploaded some sample images here: http://imgur.com/a/6DxDN

Getting this error:

Could be solved by:
1) Reconnecting to the Internet
2) Relaunching Mac App Store
3) Restarting the computer
4) Using "Clean My Mac" to remove the temp files.
And even if that doesn't help ("Clean My Mac" sometimes misses some temp files) :
5) Using "Find Any File" to find and manually remove the temp files, related to old version of this software

In most cases, steps 1) - 3) are enough.

I dont know.....

about Safari. Being a early adopter when Safari first goes out, in most Mac machines the thing becomes a resource hog. Too many treads here about Safari memory leaks, using too much processor and so on. Also, using a Windows PC sometimes, I am disappointed about no further development in Windows. So, I hope with the recent changes in Apple management, they deliver products that works, are efficient and sleek (mantra of Apple doing) no something to meet a deadline

Got rid of the problem. Using Chrome
It is slick. The only thing I miss in it is a three finger tap to bring up the definition of a word.

I had a different error code in relation to downloading Safari 6.0.2 and iTunes 10.7 the other day. An 'error 103' which made the software updater stop giving me the updates after none of them was installed - neither Safari nor iTunes went on to be installed when this error came up.

I went looking inside the system to try and let Mac App Store give them to me again to install, by clearing caches, but no such luck. The Software Update prefpane on the other hand said that there indeed was updates for me to install - no such thing in MAS.

I went scouring the internet for an answer and found something but really nothing related to my issue that could help me move forward. I was left no choice but to install Safari and iTunes from links provided here and from Apple.com - So thanks to those posting the link to Safari.

Thanks. You are right. But I guess it is not very willing sometimes. For e.g., I am not able to get it working on macrumors..very strange.

Speedier & More Stable...

I can't tell if I'm being psyched out by the progress bar or if Safari really is speedier with this update, but it's not crashing on me anymore. If I wasn't used to opening dozens of tabs in Chrome, I might try and switch back.

Anyone know of a good keyboard shortcut extension for Chrome to get Safari's functionality for quickly opening of your first nine bookmarks? So far all the extensions bite and it's the one thing about Safari I really miss...
