    How can I delete everything from computer while running yosemite. Whenever I try to go to interfacelift.com the image takes forever to load up is this normal?
    I have a 2012 macbook pro i5 4.gb ram 13inch

    What is EVERYTHING? Do you want to format or do a clean install or do you just want to delete all your personal data?

    And regarding Interfacelift, what image takes forever to load? What OS X 10.10 Yosemite version do you use on what exact hardware?

    Basically delete everything and see if yosemite runs better. and for interfacelift it is any picture. I didn't have this problem until I downloaded the yosemite public beta.
    My specification for the macbook pro is 2.5GHz dual-core
    Intel Core i5 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz) with 3MB L3 cache
    4GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory
    500GB 5400-rpm hard drive
    Intel HD Graphics 4000

    Are you sure it's not just your internet?

    And Yosemite is still in beta so several things might be slow. Did you try a different browser to see if the one you were using was the culprit?

    If you really want to try a clean install, then follow this support article: http://support.apple.com/kb/PH11273

    EDIT: Or this support article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5943

    Or worse, since you might delete something important, since everything is VAGUE.

    Anyway, you could always try a CLEAN INSTALL of OS X 10.10 Yosemite if you are unhappy with the performance of the BETA.


    It may be due to the Safari BETA being a beta.
    Tried any other browser yet to see, if the problem is still occurring?

    Hmm.

    Works fine for me. Or maybe this one is better, the one I linked to was for Mountain Lion (though it works for Yosemite too): http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5943

    I was browsing Interfacelift on google chrome. Safari is even more slow but I can understand that since it's a beta.
    I also reinstalled Yosemite but it didn't help.

    Hmm, I tried that first link in Chrome and it doesn't even load anything there.
    Same with Firefox.
    Same with Opera and Opera Next.

    And all those browsers load everything else, including Apple's Support page just fine.

    Must be on my end then. Though I have never seen five browsers frelling me like that.
    As long as it works for you, that is all that matters.

    Of all the 5 browsers you have used on your mac. Which one do you think work best?

    I use Safari primarily, then Chrome secondarily and Firefox sometimes (once a week or month or year).
    I hardly use Opera, it misses something, and I like the built in spell correction in Safari.

    Safari hands down runs the best out of all the browsers on the mac. And since Mavericks, it's faster than Chrome or Firefox in my experience and uses less battery than those too.

    When you guys click the download button for any images at interfacelift does the picture load up immediately or you guys have to wait a couple of seconds for it to load completely?

    With safari, it takes about 2-3 seconds for me to download completely, depending on the wallpaper. Remember, these are high resolution pictures. So give them time to download.

    Just erased everything and now I am back on maverick. interfacelift is performing even more slower than before. I think this might be a hardware problem, since i didn't have this problem until I got my logic board replaced a week ago.
