    Wondering what may cause this....

    Recently Safari seems to be very slow at loading pages. It begins, and the progress bar starts to go...it then seems to take about 5 times the normal time to load the page.

    But I've found that if I stop the load and then press reload, it then loads normally.

    thanks for the help :D

    You can also try, for a less-drastic approach, the Empty Cache choice under the Safari menu.

    Or just export your bookmarks and reset away!

    Is it necessary to export the bookmarks when resetting Safari?

    Resetting doesn't touch the bookmarks, unless you count the History as a bookmark folder. :)

    Did this change from 1.x to 2.x? I always remember my bookmarks would be lost if I reset Safari, but haven't needed to do so under Tiger.

    My bookmarks are intact whenever I reset my safari 1.3.1. in Panther.

    Yeah, my bookmarks stayed the same in Safari 1.0 too. It's one of the greatest features of Safari IMO, although if Safari was perfect it wouldn't need it, ironically. :)

    You could also try to run this little application called safari speed. It supposed to eliminate the page loading delay. Here is the link.

    Let us know if any of the suggestions worked out for you.

    That pretty much just displays data as it comes in. Doesn't speed up rendering, just how you view it being rendered. :)
