Anybody experienced how sluggish it is now to start another tab in safari ? It literally takes SECONDS to start a new tab because it is trying to do that idiotic animation.


****ing Johny Ive.

I wouldn't say it takes 5s on my MBP, but it's certainly not instant.

I have a 15" late 2013 rMBP. Very smooth here. I don't think I've ever had it hang for anything but internet latency. I've been running Yosemite since PB1.

What is your new tab set to load when it starts?

Mine is set to load Top Sites and is pretty instant. If yours is set to load a particular web page then it will need to fetch that page whenever you start a new tab, time to load will depend on your web connection and the web server providing the page.

Hey I just worked with all the quality diagnostic information provided.... :eek:

...understand the frustration....

If you change to a blank page opening does the speed improve? Trying to separate if the issue is opening the tab or related to the content of the tab.....

People who don't have it try spamming cmd+t 10 times in a row, you will see it
I've just tried it 100 times and every one except the 48th (which stuttered for about 1/2 second) was instantaneous (or at least as near instantaneous as I could detect).

I tried on 2007 iMac and 2012 MBA. Who knows what causes it. Maybe Adblock? I'll try later to disable it (the only extension I have) oh and I also have empty page for new pages, so no load on cpu. Strange
