Thanks Chas! I turned off top-sites when I first got my Mac and it has been turned off since (never liked that feature). However, I once again started to use Safari today, just to see if it is still the frustration that it used to be. Well, an hour into it now and it beachballed only once on me, when I clicked on the link in the thread about the big boulder crushing a car and someone's home in Ohio. But that did not crash the whole browser, it beachballed for a while and then the site finally loaded and I was able to click elsewhere agin after that.

Cheers

Just curious and I would love to know how and where to turn Off Top Sites, ie: so they don't keep getting downloaded or added except perhaps using "Private Browsing". SL 10.6.8.

I managed to with Leopard by changing the write permissions on the, I believe the folder: ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Webpage\ Previews directory

Thanks SINC, but that option only seems to remove the Top Sites icon from the Bookmarks Bar, and the Top Site images keep getting installed, ie: it doesn't stop them.

And why the Safari developers decided that I needed to have TWO bloody images stored for every single web page I visit, a jpg AND a png file, only God know I guess.

And yes, I include the top site clearing option when clearing my Safari history which helps a bit.
