    Anyone else feels that the 10.9.2 update made their computer faster than before? If yes, does anyone know what Apple did to improve efficiency? :D

    Safari is faster than before on my RMBP, I think this is because Apple updated the graphics driver.

    Definitely. Don't know what they've done, but I like it.

    Hmm. Don't notice a difference. If anything, Safari sometimes appears a bit slower now, especially going backwards, etc, and the Top Sites loading.

    I've been having even more issues with freezing :confused:

    I might just downgrade to 10.8 at this point.

    Did you do a clean install?

    I feel no difference at all expect the fact that 10.9.2 is draining battery more quickly than before.

    Seems sluggish compared to ML - fresh install. I downgraded back to ML.

    I was noticing that it does seem to be a little snapper on my rMBP then before. I'll keep an eye on my battery tomorrow. Its normally just usual Safari usage. I'll run it from 100% to 0% tomorrow. Its due for its bi-monthly calibration anyway.

    Don't notice any difference at all. It was snappy before and still is. Battery remains equally good.
