Is it just me or does safari choke on pages full of animated gifs

    I have a new 17" mac with 4gb of ram and also a imac loaded with snow leopard and both machines have all their updates.. It seems like anytime I look at a thread on here that is loaded with animated gifs I get the spinning color wheel and shit just creeps for 20 to 30 seconds at a time... Annoying

    and why the f can't preview support viewing animated gifs?????

    Same thing for me. For gif threads I switch over to Firefox.

    I don't see how they can tout that 100% on the acid3 test or whatever yet it can't handle gifs that the old version of internet explorer can :rofl:

    Any picture threads in general choke for me.

    seems like it takes them longer to load, but my other tabs seem to keep up
