    I've got safari 4 on 3 different mac's all running leopard with latest updates.

    When browsing the web randomly it decides to take ages loading a page even sites like google. To make it load I have to stop it then press refresh.

    I've tried unticking the fraudulent sites box and repairing permissions in disk utility, but i still get the same problem on all 3 mac's.

    Can anyone help?

    I second the motion to try Firefox. Also install the Adblock Plus add-on from addons.mozilla.com.

    If the pages speed up, then it is most likely due to an ad site being very slow.
