    Ever since I have upgraded to 10.5.2 Safari on both my (Brand New) mac pro and (year Old) Macbook Pro both seem to have intermitant page stops and Slow loading issues.

    I have not been able to find any answer or solution on what is causing this :confused:

    It's pretty damn fast for me except there are moments where Safari seems to spazz out and end up going dead slow. I guess it has something to do with not emptying the cache.

    Overall, it's fast and it seems like an improvement over 10.5.1

    Thats what I'm talking about .... I have tried everything... Empty caches, Prefs,Plist,Plugins... I'm stumped. It must be my internet connection. But the PC in the other Room has not had these issues.

    OSX in general is slow when handeling Java and Flash for whatever reason. You think they would have figured out how to make this faster/better in the 7+ years of OSX....

    Safari is fine on pages which do not require Java or Flash, but that is few and far between now with all these Flash advertisements... :rolleyes:

    It may be a DNS Server issue. See Post #9 in this thread.

    Mine got faster too. On Mac Pro, 2 MBP's and iMac.

    Sorry man, must be something else.

    Did you install the graphics update with 10.5.2? A buddy at work didn't and his was slow as molasses in winter. Then he did and 'boom' it was faster than ever.
