I've noticed this happen before. I've also noticed that sometimes the pages get all blurry. Like after swiping back and forth on the trackpad to go back or forward a page. Has anyone else noticed this?

Not quite but I had pages not load at all and just be white. Never an error or anything just a blank white page. It was weird and started recently out of the blue. I'm glad they fixed the postal shipping thing. That one boggled my mind. I downloaded some adobe bloated wear crap and it still didn't work. I had to resort to something else. I thought it was the postal site not safari.

Installed and went right back to using Chrome. I probably won't give Safari another honest look until Mountain Lion comes out.

The new update acts different can't describe it really. Maybe how it loads not sure, but it's an improvement on my end. I'm getting closer to what I want out of it. Still Top sites got a little glitch now and then. Its smoother though I can already tell that. Sometimes a page gets stuck no matter what bookmark I click. It still does it I just had it happen so that's still there. I almost forgot about that problem, because i don't get it a lot.
