    Alright, so i've been getting pretty frustrated with Safari 4 lately. Whenever I open a new video in Youtube, in hangs for a couple of seconds before it starts playing. Also, when I go to the videos tab (or any other youtube tab for that matter) the thumbnails take around 5 seconds to load before I can even start scrolling the page. This is just absolutely ridiculous and is annoying me to no end. This does not happen in Firefox, Camino, or Opera. My flash is the latest (version 10, I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it twice to make sure) and have yet to run into anything that may fix this problem. I even wiped my Safari clean and the problem still persists. Any help is appreciated.

    the images load late because of the coding of safari, its just how it handles them (i think it tries to load all images at once).

    youtube pausing is because flash support on macs is PATHETIC.
