    Ok reciently i've been experiencing lagging a lot it' snot too serious but it stops for a tad and keeps going and when you watch videos on youtube or watch videos just in general it bugs me a lot. It also tends to happen when I type it just freezes for a sec.

    I've tried using Onyx to clear up everything, I try using disk utility for permissions, i've cleared my cookies and cache on firefox (and pretty much all my other programs) and even if I quit all my other programs except for one it still happens. All this helps it a tad but it doesn't seem to fix it. What could be making this happen and how can I make it better?

    Is it your internet connection?

    If not you can also look at your activity monitor and see if anything is taking up an unusual amount of processing or memory when you experience the lag.
