    I've been using Safari 5.0.3 for a few months now, and I hate it! Before I updated (using Software Update) Safari was smooth and did not lag while scrolling or loading web pages. Now, almost all pages (including MacRumors Home) lags when scrolling and viewing. Does anyone else have a similar problem, or is it something on my end?

    Smooth and fast for me.... maybe an extension or add-on causing problems? Does the problem still exist after rebooting?

    The problem does indeed exist after a reboot. I have disabled all extensions, and I don't think I have any add ons. Should I run Onyx or something similar to clean up my HDD? I haven't done that for months...

    A few things you could try:
    • Use Activity Monitor to check for runaway processes
    • Repair permissions (doubt it will help, but it can't hurt)
    • Reinstall Safari
