    Can someone please solve this? Safari is one app I use the most on my mac!

    So this is what happens on every damn website! All broken images and the entire webpage all scattered! I've been using Chrome because of this and I am confident it is not only damaged the battery but a lot more on my mac!

    Also, when I make a new user account on mac and use safari on it, this problem does not seem to exist!
    Formatting and re-installing is not an option...not all all :/

    Can someone please help me with this?

    I need a long battery life and no other browser is as efficient as safari.
    Apart from that, its the only browser I'm very much used to..and like.
    Someone please help me with this :(

    Just reset Safari. Deleting the cache will most likely fix this issue for you.

    It happens once in a while on mine, usually refreshing the page will work. Try resetting safari's cache.

    BTW, Chrome isn't damaging anything, not your battery or anything else. It sucks and hogs ressources like no other, but doesn't damage anything.

    That should help.
    The odd format is fixed if you do a page reload (command-R) - right?
    If you delete the browser caches or simply reset Safari, you then Quit, then re-launch Safari, right?

    Go to your user folder Library, and delete the Caches folder. (if you need help with that, easiest method to get to your user/Library is to go to the Go menu in the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Library from that menu. Delete the Caches folder that you find there. )
    Next step is to Log out, then log back in to your user.
    After you logout, then log back in, empty your trash (you may see that it has at least 1 GB of files to remove.) The Caches folder that you trashed will be recreated in your Library, as your system accesses it.

    When I disable styles in Safari, I get to look exactly the same

    Check whether you have Disable Styles turned on in the Develop menu in Safari

    (If the Develop menu isn't shown, Safari>Preferences…>Advanced>Show Develop menu in menu bar)
