    Running Safari on Lion. Latest patch (but this has been a problem since Lion).

    Occasionally (perhaps once a day) Safari will suddenly start loading pages but not actually drawing them. The page will load, the URL in the address bar shows I'm on the new page (having clicked a link) the history is updated but it still displays the old page.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Yup, I've seen it under Snow Leopard with Safari 5.1 as well.

    The split-process model introduced in Safari 5.1 still has some bugs. Sometimes the page-rendering process gets disconnected from the GUI process. (Other times, they're all too connected and the GUI locks up when the rendering process does.)

    It seems occasionally that there are bugs with certain extensions as well.

    Click2Plugin and Click2Flash under Lion, for instance, messes with HTML5 fullscreen, and as a result, causes Safari fullscreen to retain certain UI elements over to another desktop whereas it shouldn't.

    I'm not aware of any other glitch since I only have Adblock installed now, but I'm certain there would be more.
