Since the 10.5.6 update Safari is pretty much unusable. I've tried the various remedy's the forum has suggested, the last being uncheck check for fraudulent web sites. Deleted all Safari .plst's etc.
I have found a workaround that works perfectly. Camino. Really fast.

    Hi Jon,

    Specifically, what things have you tried? Unless you mention them we've no idea what you really have tried.

    Camino. Really fast.


    Yep, I've been using Camino as my main browser for years now. Top browser

    Safari is very inconsistent. I'm sick of writing about it. Hope Apple fixes it. Firefox wins hands down!! Could be a JAVA issue so I'm told

    Hi MDJ51,

    Did you try the things I suggested to you before Christmas? Since you never posted back, all I could assume was that something worked. I'm guessing not...?

    I have been having the same problem but I found a major fix tonight. I added the DNS numbers this thread below suggested for an old problem and presto it worked great for me!!! I feel like an idiot as I had the cable company out this week to check our line ( which obviously was fine.) I found this link by searching "slow safari render". Hope this helps you as I am smoking fast again.

    Apple Community Discussions Slowness in page rendering usually can be remedied by adding DNS server codes in System Preferences>Network panel. Go to that panel, click on your Internet connection, then select "advanced". In the DNS panel, enter 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2, select OK, then "apply".
