For some reason, since I updated my brand new 13 inch MBP to Lion, Safari runs slow as a dog. All my other internet based applications including Chrome run at normal speed. I also verifed this by pinging on this Mac and on a different one.


I tried clearing the cache and resetting Safari. I also do not have any 3rd party antivirus/firewalls installed. Is anyone else experiencing this?





SOLUTION: Hopefully this helps someone else out.


Close Safari, then open Terminal. Type:


chflags nohidden ~/Library/


You will then be able to see ~/Library in the Finder. Goto ~/Library/Caches/ Delete the Cache.db file. Restart Safari and you should be all set. For some reason the "Reset Safari" and "Empty Cache..." don't seem to be working...
