    I have been struggling with safari Version 5.0.5 (5533.21.1) for over a month now and it's driving me crazy.

    Basically the problem is when i load web pages it's really really slow. the beach ball keeps rotating and doesn't do anything a lot of the times. I have to manually "x" the beachball and refresh it. I shouldn't have to do this!

    Here are the things I've done. Reinstalled the OS with latest updates - didn't fix it,

    thought my computer was slow, so bought an SSD drive and still safari is being slow. Repaired disk permission 3 times, but still safari is being slow! I mean, what on earth is wrong with safari? If this carries on i'm going to have to go back to firefox on a permanent basic because I can't take this any more.

    Anyone else have or had this problem and if you've managed to fix it i would be most grateful if you could share how you did it,

    Many thanks :)
