I upgraded to Safari 6 just before (using Software update, I'm using 10.7) and... it's completely unusable.


I tried to post this question using Safari but it crashed 4 times, so I'm in Chrome now. (No crash report dialog appeared to report to Apple.)


And it's slow: There are huge lags in typing. And long scrolling lags.


It's basically unusable. That's not an exaggeration - it's seriously completely unusable. Just the crashing alone makes it unusable.

Wasn't this tested?


I usually use Safari as my main browser and Chrome for testing, but I'm going to have to use Chrome as my main browser until this is fixed.


Anybody know what's going on?
