  1. safari is VERY slow when you have multiple screens open… also all flash based video is slow and jaggity.. (i know, flash sucks…) i just notice the spinning ball a lot and have to re-start

    1. Add to that the drag and instability created by Safari extensions and add-ons. Not that I’d want to remove them all! I enjoy using 1Password and [that ad removal add-on that shall not be named]. Ghostery is kewl. Do Not Track Plus is kewl. Web Of Trust is kewl. But they eat CPU, adding to Safari’s already voracious need for RAM and CPU cycles.

      BTW: Whoever leaked this information about Safari 5.2 Update 3 is very naughty. They are under Apple’s NDA. (Non-Disclosure Agreement).
