    Hi All

    More often than not...when I try to load a page in Safari, it will start to load and the blue progress bar will get about 1/4 along, and then it seems to hang.

    If I press reload..it then seems to load normally.

    ANy ideas?

    cheers:)

    Have you any extensions installed? Try getting rid and starting again.

    ok, try changing your DNS servers....

    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220

    If that doesn't work, I'm out :D

    DNS is for Domain Name System. When you punch in yahoo.com a DNS server tells your computer to go to specific Internet IP address like 76.85.237.76 to find that site.

    This will walk you through how to change the DNS servers used by your computer.
