    Seriously? $100 billion and they can't test Safari before releasing it? Maybe Mavericks is a a bit faster, but the constant freezes, Finder crashes etc make it unusable. This Safari makes me nuts!
    And I have no choice as I just got a new Macbook... Every new system is worse,
    what happened to the good old Apple?

    Mavericks runs absolutely fine on my Early 2011 MBP. Safari has NEVER crashed, Finder has NEVER crashed. IMO, Mavericks is the best release of OS X since SL.

    the 7.0.1 developer release fixed a lot of Safari issues for me.

    I'm using that too and Safari has been rock solid.

    I say the same thing. It's pretty sad. They dont' spend enough of that money on quality computer scientists. Google's got 'em!

    Since I installed Mavericks, I notice that the temperature has got a lot colder. I'm even seeing frost in the mornings.

    "Computer scientists"? They don't need scientists, they have software engineers. Google has their own share of messy problems.

    I've had zero problems with Mavericks on 2 machines, a 13" MBA from 2013, and a 2008 27" iMac.

    This is the opposite of what I've experienced so far, since DP1.
    Mavericks work so well that they would need a really great 10.10 to make me upgrade, even if it's free.

    so you happy guys do not have ANY issues with Safari? It doesn't choke
    or stop for those long pauses? Never?

    Really? This is strange, that means it's acting like that on the newest Mac only?
    Great job, no doubt... The other most noticeable choke is in the Calendar,
    this is pretty much unusable, chokes and pauses all the time.

    2012 rMBP here. Was (and I like to think I still am) a big Chrome fan but, since Mavericks, I'm using Safari 95% of the time. Loving it.

    I have the new 15" rMBP 2.6/16GB/1TB
    No chokes or pauses with Safari or Calendar
    I use Safari almost exclusively now and the memory management seems so much better

    This is really weird, I have the exact same configuration :D
    Not sure what makes our Macbooks different, maybe the screen,
    but that makes no sense...
    When I open Calendar, it almost always is frozen, have to wait to be able
    to start scrolling. In Safari, the pages freeze all the time, have to wait for
    almost every new page, a looong pause -> starts loading... Annoying as hell.

    Did you do the clean install or you're just using preloaded OS?

    The only issue I have with Safari is where sometimes the gesture for going back a page messes up the tab. It just sort of hangs there, a tiny bit back and mostly not.

    I had it in 7.0, have it on 7.0.1, but don't have it on the nightlies (which I can't use right now anyway because they crash on start, going to wait a couple of days and download the newest one and hope).

    Has anyone ever noticed that some have issues, and others do not, and wonder why that is ? I have no issues to report, but others do, and there has got to be a reason for this.

    Is it because...

    1. Not enough memory ?

    2. Old programs on the system not meant for the newest OS ?

    3. Third party apps, and programs that are not coded properly ?

    4. Crap beta programs perhaps ?

    5. Added DIY hardware that is old or malfunctioning a bit ?

    6. Haven't cleaned their systems for a good while ?

    Got to be a reason.

    I posted something similar a little while back, if there really is an inherent major problem with Mavericks, we would all have issues, yet a lot of us do not, myself included, so yes, that tells me that there are other issues with problem Mavericks installation.

    I also wonder about that -- why some have so many issues with the Mavericks update. I have a MBP mid 2012 and I didn't do a clean install of Mavericks. Safari, Finder, and other apps run perfectly. The only minor beef I have is the seeing split second spinning beach balls occasionally which I didn't have with ML.

    Is your new MBP on warranty?

    I get a weird bar across my screen that messes up the picture as I scroll or a video is showing. It kind of looks like a video that's playing from a VCR.

    I'm running OS 10.9 on a new Mini and 2009 Mac Pro for nearly a month and Safari is rock stable. Not one crash or freeze. Must be some sort of app or driver conflict in your system. Or maybe run permissions or disk repairs?
