    Has anyone ever noticed that no matter what OS your on, if youre using Safari and browsing eBay it takes for friggin ever to load a page? I've passed Subway sandwiches in the time it takes to load an eBay page using Safari!

    It used to happen all the time on Safari pre-Tiger. But since Tiger and Safari 2.0, browsing ebay is like browsing any other site. :)

    On Panther, when I type the text for an ebay listing, it shows what I have typed like 4 words behind as I type. (I'm not a huge mega super fast typer either). I don't know if it's ebay or the iBook in my sig has a junk processor.

    I think what youre referring to is an auto-fill feature of safari.

    Try signing this petition:

    Yeah, I know, petitions do nothing. But eBay won't know people are having issues unless you report it. If they start supporting FF and Safari, it'll make things better for all of us. Having them recommend IE when they are such a big site with so many users on other platforms is a slap in the face.

    I love eBay, but I can't stand IE, and I have a lot of issues in Safari and FF on it.

    The biggest problem I've got on eBay is getting Safari to remember my login and password. The cookie seems to expire within hours. A pain in the neck. Who do I blame, Apple or eBay?

    Yeah, and it's as slow as molasses in January too.

    eBay. Does it in FF too, Mac & PC. At least for me.

    That also happened on my PC laptop with IE all the time. :rolleyes: It's definitely eBay.
