    When I download certain extensions from Safari such as adblock it slows the SunSpider Javascript Test and get a larger number than if I were to have adblock disabled.

    I can confirm this by doing the test and noticing the slowdown of the test and disabling the adblock extention as SunSpider is doing the test, when I do the speed of the test goes to normal.

    I have the same results with other extensions.

    Because of this I am afraid to install extensions on Safari as I feel it's messing with the speed of browsing.

    Try it yourself and let me know.

    Thank god I'm not the only one. Should have done a research of others who posted this issue. But other than adblock I feel that if adblock can mess with Safari that other extensions will do the same that results in different issues. This should not be the case.
