    Whenever I loaded the NYTimes website, I noticed quite a bit of lag when scrolling through their webpages. It's full of ads (java, flash, etc.). I reinstalled Flash and it did nothing.

    I was browsing through the utilities folder so I could repair disk permissions. I saw a Java folder, which I double clicked. Then I saw a preferences app.

    I clicked it and moved up the 64-bit version of Java to be the primary Java used. I'm not sure why it wasn't already set to be primary.

    At any rate, Safari is a lot faster now. Some other MB Aluminum users might want to take a peek to see if the first listed Java is the latest 64-bit version.

    It might be the aluminum casing making it hard for the mac to receive wifi signal so it may be hardware not software

    Ahh, good call. I'd never noticed that before.

    There is also Safari Adblock that's supposed to help on pages with ads.
