I'd prefer to use Safari but its usually very slow to render webpages compared to Firefox and Chrome. Even if the progress bar completes all the way left to right the page can take 5-10 seconds to fully render. With Chrome the same pages render in less than a second. Firefox is also very fast. Is there a particular reason why Safari is acting this way? I even went to speedtest.net and when the test is running in Safari the needle on the 'dashboard' will freeze and its just a very glitchy animation. Through both Chrome and Firefox the needle moves smoothly with the test and never hangs up. This isn't an internet speed issue. I'm getting around 150mbps down and 21mbps up over WIFI. This is a 2014 MBA with 4GB RAM, i5, and is a week old Mac. I've never had such a poor web browsing experience in years as I am now with Safari. Acts like IE in the 90's on dial up.
