Hmm, why am I not seeing "Fixes issue that causes your £2500 computer with highest end specs to run a little bit slower than your Windows 95 PC from 1999" in the list of fixes?

I've been so leary to take the leap to Yosemite, although it is a very beautiful place in real life.

What could happen? ;)

OK, Safari/Internet/WiFi feels way WAY faster on my 13" Air after the 10.10.2 update. Everything feels instant now.

WiFi is still not fixed: webpages in Safari still don't load correctly or don't load at all.

Looking forward to Windows 10 now.
