    The one and only thing that truly bothers me about Safari is when having extensions ENABLED, Safari automatically refreshes the page upon hitting the 'back' button (or swiping) and going to the previous page. Whyyyyyyyy :(

    Interesting. I'm seeing page loads both with and without extensions loaded. Although sometimes I don't see page re-loads while still having extensions.

    Ugh seriously? I was thinking of finally migrating over from Chrome never made a thread about this, but it is always very annoying to me. Why does Safari refresh like that when going back a page it makes no sense. Like seriously the behavior is that of an old outdated iPad with low RAM what gives?

    Feels like Safari is a bit of a mess after the upgrade. It won't let me klick on certain links on Facebook and when i finally manage to click and swipe back it goes somewhere else, like two pages back or whatever.

    Chrome is just so much better. I don't know why they don't make Safari the best browser. Even simple things like bookmark icons aren't featured in Safari for the bookmark bar

    It's sad too because I WANT to like and use Safari, especially with the new iCloud features.. but it just has too many little problems that add up to be lots of problems.

    2) no mega.co.nz support

    That is another thing the bookmarks bar is awful in Safari no icons, and then when browsing on my iPhone all the bookmarks are hidden in the "bookmarks bar" section. Not happy at all.

    Wow, my experience is totally opposite. Safari is outstanding for me in every way. I have never liked chrome on a Mac...just firefox and safari but I could not be happier. Interesting ;)

    I was really hoping this would be fixed. Its literally the only thing stopping me from using Safari as my main browser. Oh, well FireFox for me....

    With every new OS X version I give Safari a try, hoping it will be usable. I hate the constant page reloads, trouble handling flash sites (yes, I still visit some sites that use flash) and the inability to play nicely with Google images. I'm giving it a go again now, so we'll see whether this version can replace Firefox for me.

    It doesn't refresh for you when going back or forward to previously visited sites?

    The first one I could see, the second is not something they can do anything about. >_>;

    I always used it and while a browser like Firefox was sometimes (mostly) a bit faster I always stuck with Safari because of favorites I had in there and dragging a site under the adres bar to save it (forgot the name for that srry) and I loved the look of Top Sites, but they ruined that now.
