Quick Tip #2: Safari Rendering Delay

10 05 2006

If you have noticed that Safari can sometimes renders pages a little slower than, say the likes of Camino, then here is a solution which I found by searching Google.

  • First, make sure Safari isn’t running.
  • Then, open Terminal in Applications->Utilities.
  • Type the following command (all on one line) and press enter:

sudo defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay 0.25

  • You will be asked to authenticate.

That’s it! When you next open Safari you should see a noticeable difference in how fast it renders a web page.
