    Please go to in Safari and in Firefox simultaneously.

    Now click on the picture to randomize the images in each of the browsers’ windows.

    Notice something?

    Firefox’ site rendering is much more fluid than Safari’s. Safari loads the BACKGROUND again and again with each click completely upsetting the eye. Firefox has the background steadily black as it is and loads the randomized image properly without any kind of irritation.

    Is there a way to make Safari load pages more efficiently like Firefox?

    Or is it just a rendering of all WebKit browsers that behaves like that?

    That could be an issue with the website. All web browsers will render web pages differently.

    Oh, nonsense. Which standard of fluid do mean? W3C? IEEE? IEC? SAE? MIL-SPEC? JPEG? What?

    Seriously, there is no way to do this test scientifically. You have a nebulous concept--fluid--in reference to random images served to separate browsers at different times.

    FWIW, I performed the test. After two or three images in each browser, the fluidity of the two were indistinguishable.

    Its quite obvious, when click an image to randomly load next pic, safari display a huge white background for a second or so.

    Its either about how different browser decode images, or how they handle some tag differently.

    That’s what I mean exactly.

    For all the criticism FF is getting here for the lack of “Mac” feel it seems that it’s not as clumsy with rendering the background again and again and again unnecessarily.
