    Are u sure the new Safari didn't just reset the cache?

    All things new and shinny give the illusion of "better."

    Could it have to do with better ram optimization?

    I've been playing with it since the first DP way back when. It is markedly faster. Especially when compared to Chrome on my machine. The most notable improvement for me is scrolling, it is so much smoother and less choppy.

    This all being on a 2008 MacBook with the 9400m. I'm sure it's even better on the newer stuff. But it's smooth as butter here.

    I have had the occasionally rendering issue here and there however, as well as some plugin oddities. But nothing too major.

    Safari feels snappier a lot. Scrolling on mba 2013 was struglling, now it is blazing fast

    Browermark before was 4400 now is 7400. That's a HUGE difference for the same hardware. Actually it scored higher than my i7 2600k desktop which gets 6800. :eek:
