    Safari quickly gets bloated-starts low and goes to over a GB. Very slooow.
    I've cleaned it out several times-once with an Apple genius.
    I have a Macbook Pro Aluminum with 4GB

    Can anyone suggest a fix-I really like Safari

    Did you ever delete Safari's preferences?
    Quit Safari. From your home folder, go to Library, Preferences, and delete com.apple.safari.plist. Empty the trash. Restart Safari.

    What will deleting that do? Will it just create another one? mine is 16kb
    If I close Safari completely and reopen, it helps. Sometimes I have to log out and sometimes restart

    I have the exact same problem. I get ticked off when I see people boasting how blazing fast Safari is.

    It takes forever to load anything–even the Apple homepage.

    Late '08 MBP 4gbs of ram.

    P.S. Safari also kills my Wifi signal, forcing me to reboot my router service.
