    I think the perceived delay theory is correct. If you hit the back button rather than swiping back you spend an equivalent amount of time staring at the current page as the page you are going back to reloads in the background. However, what I cannot understand is why, if Safari has always worked like this, has it only recently become apparent (in my case within the last couple of weeks)? I've changed nothing, which tends to suggest someone else has. It seems likely that an update has caused the change. I wish I could change it back. It is SO annoying.


    I do not think I shall be reinstalling the OS. The last time I contacted Apple about a problem was when I bought this iMac and found it had the problem, widely reported in this forum at the time, where the screen tended towards yellow on one side. In their usual helpful way they denied all knowledge and told me that the best solution would be to reload the OS. Of course this would have done no good. Obfuscation seems to be standard practice at Apple customer care and I do not think I shall be buying Apple again.
