Frequently lately Safari has been hanging. I do have a habit of keeping a couple dozen pages open in several windows. At some point Safari just won't load pages. I can get the URLs to work in Chrome. If I restart Safari is will work for a while and then stop working.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 2.4 gHz model

    Can you reproduce the problem at will, or is it random?

    I have a variation on this problem.  Safari starts off working well, but quickly goes downhill.  Especially on my iPad. (All my versions and OS are uptotdate.)

     

    If I open a page - go to a second page - usually cannot get back to the first one.  On iPad have to cancel the session and relaunce then it works at first and the cycle repeats as above.

     

    This has only happened after downloading the most recent cersion of Safari.

    Select

            

    Safari Preferences Extensions

         

    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them and test.

    Only appears to happen on iOS 6 on my iPad

     

    On my iMac Safari can be slow somethimes as heavy usage times, but it works.  On iPad it does not. Needs to be forced closed and restarted.

     

    Thanks for you help.
