    Is anyone else experiencing the dreaded spinning data wheel in Safari? I'm getting it a lot on this MacRumors site.
    iOS8 had completely eradicated this issue which plagued me throughout iOS6 and 7.

    Try clearing your cache?

    Would that be the clear history and website data option?

    It doesn't happen all the time, and could be a website glitch. Often I'm not alerted to threads that I'm watching, and quoting someone occasionally fails to bring up their text. Sometimes the spinning wheel clears itself and sometimes it doesn't.

    That's why I asked, I was hoping there was a separate cache clearing function somewhere but thought not...

    Oh my god, yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

    It's this weird bug that if you close a tab before it's done loading, the spinning icon in the status bar stays there forever and keeps spinning, even if you have no other tabs open.

    It's really annoying. It irks me to no end.

    The MacRumors site is slow and glitchy. I can open data-heavy newspaper webpages faster than a MR thread.
