    Ever since I updated when Safari 5 came out, it's been ridiculously slow. About 5 times slower than Safari 4. I remember reading about such problems with Safari 5 and I tried all of the recommendations, but they didn't help. Some pages just won't load unless I try multiple times.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks

    John

    Have you tried the usual?

    Empty cache
    Reset Safari
    Move Safari plist file to desktop and relaunch app
    Repair disc permissions in Disc Utility

    Isn't it, though? It takes like 10 seconds to fire up on my Mac.

    What third party add-ons/plug-ins do you have installed?

    Remove one by one until you find the culprit.

    reinstall

    I would reinstall Safari if I was you. Worked for me when I had issues 2 months ago.
