    Hello,

    I've bought an iMac 20" with 2.4 ghz dual core and 2 GB ram, running Mac OSX Leopard.

    When I start Safari or FireFox it starts slow and the browsing is really slow to. I often get the "loading" cursor and when I watch flash movie's there are much delays.

    Cleaning cache, cookies and history doesn't work. It's now for 2 weeks that I've got this problem.

    Can anybody help me?

    Greets,
    Ruben

    Well, Flash pretty much sucks on OS X, it is a fact of life. On my Core Duo MacBook, Safari uses 1.5% CPU (adjusted for dual core) when simply browsing, that is with multiple tabs open. As soon as I get some flash going, that number jumps to 40-60%CPU (again adjusted).

    The problem is that javascript also sucks. Safari or FireFox doens't matter.

    Even simple HTML browsing is going slow.

    You could try flushing your DNS cache

    In terminal type: dscacheutil -flushcache and hit enter

    have you tried running a speedtest and looked at your pings?
    Do you have another machine there to test to make sure its not your connection itself?

    My pingspeed: 15.0 ms

    I've got a PC here and that is not slow.

    @Neil: doesn't work
