Safari grinds to a halt - culprit found

23 Aug 2004

Hmm. It looks as if Zlog had this problem and I’d like to know if anyone else has too. Safari seems to have a problem with usage over time. The more I use it, the slower and unresponsive it becomes. Resizing the window takes the patient of a saint. Clicking on toolbar bookmarks has a 4 second delay, and it really has to think hard about showing you a menu item. Whats that all about? Does Safari need a sit down with a cup of tea the same as I do? The simple fix is the quit out, and relaunch. Everything is back to normal, until later in the day when I start to notice it slow down again. Grrr. Not so bad when you’ve got Saft reopening your last used tabs for you, but I still shouldn’t be having to do it. I have wondered whether this has anything to do with the various plug-ins for Safari that I’ve installed, so I’d particularly like to hear from anyone who runs Safari in its clean, naked form. update – It seems that after a length of time Safari will slow down, until you relaunch it, but that it was Saft that made this a little worse. Fiddling with caches of pages/history/favicons made no difference, but removing Saft from the input managers folder did. Its a bit of an arse using Safari without Saft, but the speed difference was incredible!
