    Hey everyone,

    I've had this issue ever since I switched from Safari 3 to the Safari 4 beta. I was hoping that the Final would fix this, but it hasn't, so I come to you for help ...

    At points, Safari simply stops loading stuff from the cache. Particularly, once I do a hard-refresh on a page of a site, it will continue to reload every single element while I remain on that site until I close Safari. I noticed this a lot while I was doing development on my site (http://worldbeyblade.org) and it's become really frustrating.

    Please someone help me, because it's seriously slowing down my browsing.

    Wow glad someone else pointed out this issue. I thought it was just me going nuts.

    My experience goes something like this:
    After browsing a webpage for a while, or on a manual refresh, Safari stops picking up images from the cache. I can see the images loading every time as I browse around the website. If i do a Shift+refresh on that particular page, it starts picking up cached images again.

    Don't have this issue in firefox or Safari 3

    Glad to see someone else is having the same issue. I downloaded a nightly build of WebKit and used that with Safari (if you open WebKit on a Mac, it opens via Safari, but replaces the WebKit with the one you downloaded). This fixes the issue, so it's definitely a problem with Apple's implementation.

    Giving this a bump. A few people on discussions.apple.com are also having this problem. I can't explain why it isn't more widespread, but it's still so frustrating to me, and makes me want to move to Firefox 3.5 ...
