Something has happen to Safari.
All of a sudden I get a lots of can't find server notices when I try to go to new pages or sites.
Switch to Firefox and it's like lightning.
I've cleared cookies and it's still doing it.

Also all of sudden I'm not able to remove bookmarks when I go to edit my bookmarks.

I'm running 10.9.2 on my iMac.

Yes, and have run disk repair several times. I'm now guessing delete, then reinstall.
Also been getting a lot of keychain questions.

It's one of those random things, I've had it happen on numerous times.

For some reason Safari decides to stop communicating with the rest of the computer and decides you are off line. It's a pain in the back side, but probably something that'll never get sorted unless it becomes a larger issue.

With my problems, closing Safari seems to sort it. As it is just a software glitch.

As I use Safari rarely i'm not overly fussed.

Guess I'll try to reinstall, if that doesn't work, I'll go to Firefox.

Bit the Apple and called SOS, problem solved for $19.
All it took was reseting Safari.

Opera?
SeaMonkey?

I don't think so, Safari and Firefox only.
Next you'll suggest Gopher or Mosaic.

I've wanted to use Safari but adblock just sucks for it so I've went back to using Firefox - recent Windows convert.
Any news of adblock improving to the standards of how it is on Chrome or FF?

I'm using Adblock Plus and don't have any issues. Great product - and free!

I just went back into Safari, checked that I have adblock installed and went on youtube... Still has ads. Is my Adblock not working correctly or something?
