    Man, I like Safari... it scrolls faster than Chrome on my rMBP, and I like the page-forward / page-back animations, but holy **** is this the most glitchy browser I've ever used. I like how it gltiches out even on Apple's own website. Totally pathetic quality assurance. I'm switching back to Chrome.

     

    FWIW, having random white boxes, glitchy gifs, broken tables, going back a page yields a white screen, etc.

    Hey Apple! I can't even complete a purchase from the Apple Store!!! When I click on the last button (from within the shopping cart) nothing happens! You really ought to fix this.

     

    I'm running the latest Mountain Lion and the latest Safari.

    Gosh, I was soooo hoping that the Java update (released today) would fix Safari's bugs. Alas, it did not. I can report that it DID repair webcam usage under Java in Chrome and Safari, but otherwise, Safari is still complete garbage. Back to Chrome I go.

    I have this problem with my ML on my new iMac but not on my old MBP. Very strange.

    Hi,

    I'm developping a web site using HTML5 video tag and a Javascript inserted contact form.

     

    Every thing runs fine with FireFox, Opera, Chrome and IE 9, but the page slows down with Safari 6.0.1 (Mac) Safari 5.1.7 (PC) but works well with Safari 5.1.2 (Mac).

     

    As soon as the mp4 source is removed (and Safari got nothing to play) the page's back to a normal behaviour.

     

    I even tried to remove every attribute from the video tag, deactivate unnecessary scripts, rewrote all scripts in OOP with no result.

    I'm no longer getting this issue on either my iMac or my MBP Retina. Not sure why, it was happening to me constantly before. It seemed to stop after one of the recent software updates, but it's not clear exactly which one.

    On Safari 6.0.2, same problems across the board, though slightly less, but not enough to switch away from Chrome. It's a shame too, because Safari scrolls much smoother than Chrome on my rMBP, but I can't handle improper loading of the most popular websites, stuttering gifs, etc. Apple is failing all over the place these days. Back off of Samsung and fix Safari already.

    I have the same disappering partial screen problems. It is most prominent in gmail but it happens in yahoo and few other websites. I am using ML / Safari 6 and was happening from day 1. Ive been keeping up with updates but still happens.

     

    Is Apple being negligent with Macs and only concentrating on the idevices? Seems like it to me.

    Just spoke to an Apple Senior Tech Supervisor about this. They said they are aware of the issue and are working on a solution, however there is no timeline. Gave me a follow up case #. Will check with them in few weeks and see what they say, if there is no solution. At least they are aware of it.

    I'm curious what kind of computers you guys have. I'm using a Macbook Pro Retina 15" with the most updated versions of ML and Safari. When I use Safari, I get the following problems constantly:

     

    • Going back to the previous page yields a white screen half of the time
    • Trying to load an embedded document (such as a PDF or Word document through my school's Blackboard system) yields a blank page
    • GIF images load terribly (stutter constantly), or do not load at all
    • Websites like Amazon, Facebook and GMail (and many more) have huge blocks of missing content, and if I roll my mouse over the missing content, some of it shows up (buttons and such)

     

    I can literally trigger one or more of the previous problems by using Safari for 1-2 minutes, which prompts me to want to throw my computer through the window. This isn't a minor problem; this is the most glaring bug-ridden software I've ever used in my 20 years of computing. That's why I'm curious if this is happening on non-Retina models... Either they literally didn't QC their Retina line, or they literally have not QC'ed Safari on any of their products. Which one is it, Apple?
