wistfulwriter Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

I've noticed that ever since the OS X Lion update, webpages in general are pretty laggy when scrolling.  I let the page completely load and when I scrollthere is stuttering and lag.  It is made most apparent when I use momentum to scroll a long webpage.

 

It seems to happen mostly with more complex pages (which makes sense I guess).  For example, some parts of NYTimes.com doesn't have much lag when scrolling.  But most websites (like mine: http://wistfulwriter.com) are pretty laggy.  I know I use a background image and use special fonts, but I never had this problem before the Lion update.  Many other sites lag too: CNN.com, WashingtonPost.com, etc.  It seems like any time there is an image, there is stuttering.

 

I have tried setting the zoom level to default (command-0) just in case, and I have exited unnecessary applications and everything.  The lag is still there, regardless if I use fullscreen mode or not (though on some sites it is not as noticable in windowed mode).

 

Any clues?  Thanks!
