    I've noticed a bit of an annoyance in Safari:

    When I swipe back and forth thru the page history on a Tab, Safari seems to insist upon refreshing the page each time. The blue progress bar flashes quickly in the address bar.

    The primary source of annoyance is on active forum pages, like this one. When I swipe forward or back, the page refreshes, progress bar flashes, and the page re-renders. If a post/response had been inserted on the page, then the content shifts down with a blink over the initial page state. It's all a bit visually distracting.

    I would prefer to only refresh a page when I explicitly request it.

    Is there a setting for this??

    It did the same in Lion, it's always annoyed me.
