Apple develops Safari and rightly promotes it as the fastest browser for browsing the Internet.
This may actually be the case on iPhone and iPad where the Safari browser is integrated into the system, and it forces them to be based on every other browser.
But on the Mac, Safari is not the fastest browser and there are many users who prefer to browse the web with Google Chrome.
With Safari on the Mac, it can happen when a web page may load slowly or there are delays displayed when scrolling up or down, and also when you want to move back and forth between displayed pages.
For problems with slow Safari on the Mac, make sure you come back fast enough, at least as with Chrome.
1) Clear cache, history and even extensions
First of all, if Safari is slow, try clearing your browser’s cache, history, and also disabling all installed extensions to relieve the program’s burden.
To do this, go to Safari Preferences, then in the Advanced tab, enable the option below to see the enhancement menu.
Quit preferences, go to the Safari Development menu and click the buttons to clear cache and disable extensions.
Finally, from the Safari menu, instead of clicking on preferences, choose to clear all to clear history.
2) Manually delete the cache.db file
The point one procedure clears the Safari cache automatically.
However, if it doesn’t work, you can do it manually and delete the cache file.
Close Safari, open Finder, press Go, then Go to Folder, copy and paste the following path into the text box:
~ / Library / Caches / com.apple.Safari / cache.db
Then right click the cache.db file and delete it to the recycle bin.
3) Disable Dashboard
Only on older Macs (purchased in 2010 or before) I have seen the slowness of Safari and disabling the Dashboard function in the Control Panel for a lot of solutions to fix the Mac in general.
Open System Preferences, click Task Control and disable Dashboard.
4) Change search settings
Another thing you should try is changing the search settings in Safari.
Open Safari Preferences, click on the search tab, change the search engine by checking Bing.
To see if there is a difference in speed, restart Safari and then add Google again.
You can also try to see if the situation has improved by clearing all suggestion options, speed dial, boot and others.
Sometimes using a very slow internet connection, all these extra features can make Safari even slower.
5) The problem of connected networks
If the Mac is connected to the Internet via both Wifi and Ethernet cables, try removing either of them.
If you want to keep both activities active, considering that Ethernet connection is more stable than Wifi, go to System Preferences, click on Network to see the priority order.
This order can be changed by clicking the gear icon below the connection list if the WiFi is on Ethernet.
6) Use different DNS settings
Sometimes Safari may not be the cause of the internet slowness issue, but DNS settings.
It is better to use Google DNS to change DNS on Mac.
Then open System Preferences, then click on Network, select the link, go to Advanced, press the little icon + and enter the IP addresses of the new DNS servers.
Using DNS Google can speed up the internet with Safari and other browsers.
7) Install the latest version of OS X system
Many people who buy a Mac do not update their operating system to the latest version.
The latest update for Mac is OSX El Capitan, which you should install to get the latest version of Safari and take advantage of all the improvements and optimizations.
The easiest way to update OSX is to go to the App Store and click the link to download the latest version of OS X on the right.
8) Reload OX
If it’s still not resolved, the best way to fix every problem is to proceed with a clean install of OSX.
