    I like the Top Sites feature. However, I don't like that Safari checks if the site has changed since my last visit. It destroys the feature of many forums to just show me the posts which were added since my last visit :(

    I need the same thing.

    At my job there is a landing page before I can get on wireless. So all my top sites show that as the latest update. I need to disable this.

    I was also looking for an answer on how to disable top sites. My wife gets irritated by it and I'm curious if you can just get a blank white page again somehow.

    To ignore Top Sites:

    Safari Prefs > General:
    New Windows open with ~ Select anything other than Top sites
    New Tabs open with ~ Select anything other than top sites
    Safari Prefs > Bookmarks > Deselect Top sites
