    lots of beachballs with Safari on Yosemite !

    I have the same problem of lots of Safari beachballs since beginning versions of Yosemite. With 10.10.3 it got worse. I am using MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2010) with upgraded 8GB RAM and SSD. I am thinking my MBP is not fully capable of running Yosemite. I also don't have beachballs on Chrome. I am thinking downgrading to Mavericks. I did not have this beachball issue with Safari on Mavericks, but I had problems with memory management with Mavericks.

    Ever since updating to 10.10.3 I have had the same issues and at times it is unbearable. Facebook is a major killer and shows this issues quicker than most other sites.

    Are most of the people experiencing beach balls running Hard Drives and not SSD's? and 5400rpm laptop HDD's at that ?

    My experience is this.

    This isn't to say I've never seen a beach ball with an SSD but the 5400rpm HDD definitely have a higher frequency of beach balling, in my experience.

    256GB MX100 SSD here...Trim Enabled.

    Late 2013 is still on 10.10.2, likewise with the iMac. The mid '09MBP is the test rig per se. Dunno why I haven't updated to 10.10.4 PB yet.

    ETA: PRAM and SMC have been reset twice thus far, still the same results. Plus all permissions fixed.

    Create a new user account, reboot and login to the new user account. Do you get the same issue with Safari in the new user account?

    Have you tried disabling Trim...?

    Enabling Trim with kext signing disabled tends to cause some slowdowns for me, especially boot up.
