Now all we need is an update to Safari for iOS allowing us to turn off those "OMG our website has an APP!! plz DOWNLOAD!!" notifications we get with certain sites.

Can we proactively ban any "is it snappier" posts?

Try turning off "Do not preload Top Hit in the background" option in the Safari's Privacy Preferences. That should fix the problem.



Check your Internet folders, make sure there are no outdated plugins from previous OS X installs getting in the way.



It won't show you the update. You get Safari updates in seeds, not via MAS. Expect .14 to show up in the next seed update.



Oh god, yes. It's the most annoying thing ever.

Not only that, Safari for iOS needs to stop taking me to apps without asking me first just because it reloaded a tab. Fracking annoying.


Some websites automatically redirect me to the App Store for some crap IAP games :mad:

I like how Apple is being more candid about this.

I'm starting to hate Safari!

It still loads a totally random page before I can finish typing the URL. WTH! :mad:

Safari lags and freezes a whole lot lately, even with zero extensions. I'm not sure what's wrong, though I've been using 7.0.3 for a while now.

Thank you. I have OSX 10.9.3 BETA with safari 7.0.3 build (9537.75.13) and AppStore can't find the update..

Yes! this feature alone is worth an update itself. Wonder why it was never an option when it was introduced...

Oh yes. The omnibox submitting the URL or search query before I was done typing was driving me insane. Frequently it did that multiple times in a row so I had to type the address up to three times before I got where I wanted.

I assumed this was a feature.

After "It's not a bug, it's a feature", here's "It's not a feature, it's a bug".


No definitely not. And to answer the question. It definitely isn't snappier. Safari has been slow for a while now. Don't have a clue what Apple have down to 'the fastest browser' but it sure ain't as quick as Chrome or indeed Firefox.
