    Ok so recently Safari has been randomly beach balling whenever I open a new tab, and sometimes just loading a page with a bunch of images. This has only been happening in the past 5 days. Has anyone had an issue like this? It is quite frustrating. I have checked activity monitor when it is doing this and Safari is marked as not responding and taking up 75% of the processor, which for about 2 minutes locks up the entire computer.

    Whatever it was after deleting all the plists associated with Safari and installing 10.6.2 the issue went away, I don't know which action fixed it, but one of them definitely did.

    My late 2007 iMac beachballs with everything, I'm going to get a MBP at the end of the year that should be faster.

    I'm using my MBP every day and I never see beach balling.
    Repair permissions, get enough RAM and keep at least 20% on your hard disk free.

    Your 2007 iMac shouldn't be beach balling more than mine, unless you have little RAM and a full HD.

    How much RAM have you got? And what speed HD (or is it a SSD). And is your HD filled up?
