Sometimes Safari loads pages quickly, others it hangs forever! Hitting back, stop, quitting and reopening frequently kicks Safari back into gear, but GEEEEEZ this is annoying!

I suspect it has something to do with the Airport Interference Robustness setting no longer available in Leopard, as without Interference Robustness on Tiger, the net was always dreadfully slow....

AAAAAAH I wish these things would just work consistently.

Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5)

    See also this thread. I think a lot of people are seeing performance/page loading problems with Safari 3 judging by the number of threads on the discussion boards here, but I have no idea if Apple is aware/working on this, because I would guess a lot of people are reluctant to wait 30 minutes on hold to report an issue which is almost impossible to distinguish from one of a dozen other possible causes.

    Anyway, I've switched to Camino, at least for now, and it's great. Fast, Mac-like, and, the clincher for me, integrates with Keychain.

    Hi

    Try using DNS server codes. Go to your Network Panel in System Preferences>TCP. In the DNS servers box enter on separate lines 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2, then select "apply". Restart Safari.

    The DNS codes help facilitate page loading.

    Yes, the problem seems to be faulty DNS server codes. IF your ISP supports it, you can even just set up a fresh network configuration in Leopard by adding a new location in Networking (under System Preferences) with no DNS servers enumerated. That fixed it for me (so far - knock on wood).
