    Hello, I have recently purchased my first MacBook. Yesterday started facing the problem that safari won't load specific websites,like apple.com etc. Before, everything was fine... It is staring to load but then it takes it forever. Can you please tell what is wrong with this browser, and if there is any way to solve this problem.
    Thanks,

    That could as well be a connection issue. You're on Wifi I assume? Rebooted the router? Which Mac model? Give us some more info.

    Yes, I am on WiFi. This the last MacBook pro. I don't think thats the connection issue, since chrome can load everything without a problem... I don't know, with some websites, it just gets stuck and that is it..

    If Safari has trouble with certain sites (I've found this, myself), keep "an alternate browser" around.

    I have Firefox, the Epic Privacy Browser, and a copy of iCab around, "just in case" ...

    Why choose an alternate browser when Safari should work just fine? That's fighting symptoms not causes.

    Because -- in the OP's post -- it's not working.

    Sometimes, the easiest path is to go with "what works"...

    That's a tall order based on the limited information presented. There are several things you can try:
    1. Delete cookies for those sites
    2. Reset Safari completely
    3. Dump com.apple.safari.plist
    4. and so on (wouldn't try more drastic steps until the above are attempted)

    Well, actually my 2nd sentence from this post you quoted is unintermediately bound to my first one. I kindly rephrase it for you: Safari should run fine on any Mac and if it doesn't [AND] you choose a different browser you're just fighting symptoms not causes.

    Why provide a solution that doesn't solve the problem?

    Do you have an ad blocker installed? If so, try whitelisting one of the affected sites and see if that makes a difference.

    Some problems don't have solutions. At least, not "easily-discovered" ones.

    Until the OP discovers what "the problem" -is-, he needs a "workaround"...

    May be try getting it checked out at nearest Apple store? I really have no idea how mine started working & why it wasn't working before. Can't say anything. I'd suggest get it checked at Apple store.

    I think I still have AppleCare. I've searched and searched and tried all I know to try so they would be my last step.
