I was just curious if anyone has experienced slow loading websites with the rMB on Safari? I initially thought it was my internet connection but when I open the same website on my iMac, the page loads like a breeze. When I open the same page on my rMB, the loading bar pauses for a few seconds (sometimes more) and then loads the page.

What extensions are you running on Safari, if any?

I am having this same issue with my 1.2 ghz RMB. I have no extensions running, set the Macbook up as a new computer when I got it and have cleared all website data from Safari. I originally suspected it was my internet or the computer not being fast enough but chrome runs/loads everything lightning fast. Sadly the battery is not good enough on this computer to just always use Chrome so I would love to get this issue fixed. I've noticed facebook struggle to open, along with other sites that have a lot of videos or photos, things like gamespot.com or a photographers website I went to. It's a weird issue.

It won't fix your specific issue but Chrome isn't the only alternative, you can try Firefox, it's a great browser.

I use Firefox and have experienced some slowness on certain sites that run a lot of scripts (ads). 99% of the time it's just an article I want to read, only to be bombarded by ads. I just close the tab. My MBAs used to do this also which was annoying.

I'm wondering if this is a Safari issue or a rMB issue?
Well I had a maxed out 2013 15' MBPR right before switching to the new RMB and it had no issues on safari what so ever. The issues began the day I started using the RMB, thats why I initially thought the computer couldnt handle it but than when I saw all the other browsers working and realized it must be some problem between RMB and Safari.
