How come there is a slight freeze before a page loads (on my Mac)?

    Every time I reboot my modem, there is no freeze and everything works very fast. But after like a day or so, I start getting a "freeze" right before each page loads, which I am assuming is DNS. The Macs on display in the Apple store don't have that "freeze", so I'm assuming it's the ISP (Comcast)? I don't think it's a line condition either because my modem signal levels are good.

    Is this DNS or something else?

    Could be DNS. You could try Googles public DNS 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 or Open DNS 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

    I'm observing a similar behavior with my 2010 MBP and Safari 5.1 in SL; but I think it has to do with the AdBlock plugin I installed a few weeks ago (because right after that this strange behavior started, and the developer warned that every "extra" language/region filter we used would slow down the browser more)
