I had the same issues on my mac, after upgrading I ran into serious troubles.
I'm not quite sure as of now, but updating my font library by removing duplicates and a faulty font (That even caused the font library to crash) seems to have solved the issues.
However I haven't extensively tested this yet.
Another thing to try is to make Safari run in 32 bit mode. Quit Safari, Find it in the Applications, press ⌘ +i and check the "run in 32 bit" checkbox. If it runs better than you have some 32 bit app that is messing with it.
I've been having the same problem with Safari 4.0.3 and it got unbearably worse when I upgraded to Snow Leopard today. But I followed the advice above and now it's running really quickly for now.
What do you mean I have some 32 bit application that is messing with Safari? How would I discover that?
Is it ok to keep Safari running it in 32 bit mode?
Finally updated Leopard with Snow Leopard after having the disc for months. Everything works fine except for a very noticeable speed drop in pages loading in Safari esp. with "animated" pages. Did all the suggestions in this forum including disabling plug-ins and permission repairs.
Now I was going to say that nothing changed but I did notice after much web viewing that everything was super fast EXCEPT for the Apple intro page with iPad which still takes at least 10 seconds to load. What I did notice is that disabling Java scripting the iPad came up quickly but no "animations'. Am I picky or should I research more? Can't seem to find another website that's as slow as the ipad site. Nike.com even was super fast.
Hope it helps.
May the Apple be with you!!
