    Sometimes my MBA just slows down in Safari and it's a little annoying. I'm very much in love with this piece of art, but I would like the speed to be more stable. Any help guys? The fans are also a little unstable, but that's not a big problem, as they're most of the time dead silent. I just experienced turning my head against the TV when waiting for a site to open -.-

    Is there any way to speed it up, or make the speed more stable?

    For Safari, you can try reseting it.
    Go to Safari > Reset Safari.

    See if that gives it a little jump start for you.

    Good luck, ;)

    Also, try dumping cache, but make sure that's what you want to do, b/c once you dump it that's it, it's gone forever...

    It's typically the FLASH ads that slows down a browser.

    It's really great that you guys tell me all this, I appreciate it, but i need to know HOW to do it :D I'm what computer guys would call dumb.

    Dumping cache.. How? =p
    Reseting Safari doesn't do much, as I do it like once a day anyways.

    By resetting Safari it will empty the cache.

    Just to check when we say reset safari we mean: Safari>Reset Safari (Below Private Browsing). Not quitting Safari and re-opening.
