    Hi, I'm having this problem, since I installed extensions in safari it's running extremely slow, I only have official extensions from the Safari Extension Gallery, so I don't know whats the problem, I've tried reseting safari but didn't helped, only uninstalling extensions helps, the thing is I need them; it's strange cause I only have 6 extensions.

    Safari has been slow specifically in opening tabs and switching between them (only with 3 or 4 tabs it hangs)

    If anyone knows how to fix it, I'll appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Try disabling extensions in some systematic way (maybe one at a time) and see if you can determine which extension(s) is(are) causing the problem.

    Did that already
    found that there is specifically one extension that alone slows down safari a lot, AdBlock, but even without that extension, there is not a specific extension that makes it slow, I've tried every combination the problem seems to been having more than 4 extension.

    Huh?
    What else have you tried? It does no good for others to suggest things and then have you post back saying you already tried that and still have a problem.

    I already tried uninstalling extensions, but the problem is not a specific extension but the quantity.

    i had the same problem and i only had 4 extensions going as i hadnt gotten into them yet and jus with a few things enabled i was experiencing the slowness. i was at a workshop and safari was acting up so the tech disabled all extenstions (switching them all off) and it helped big time. now i just use maybe 2 as i dont think safari can handle many extentions like that.
    i think its a bug

    I have discovered that reducing the number of TopSites thumbnails from Medium to Large, eases the load of Safari 5. Anyway, Chrome 5 and 6 now is more faster than Safari. I just wish the Chrome 1Password Extension include the same features as in Safari or Firefox.

    I would argue about that, it might be on windows but not on OSX. Why? It crashed on me often, also sometimes it stops responding and I had to force quit it many times. I start using it and after about 4 minutes it becomes slower and slower till it completely stops responding. Darn shame
