Hmmm, I don't have this issue.
the fuck? I just tried finding a video with an ad in it, and I can't find a single one on YouTube, including the ones that always had ads...
Now I check in Safari and the ad is in it, but not for Chrome.
Go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ6zr6kCPj8 (sorry, the only video I know that definitely has the advertisement) with Safari and with Chrome. Chrome skips the ad and Safari still plays it. This must be new in the past 48 hours. Ok, now I kinda like Chrome more
I was forced to use it for a bit since one site I was using for job applications was being stupid with Safari and Chrome. I used it for about a week and it crashed like 5 times in that period, killing all the fucking tabs. What a piece of shit.
The only thing I don't like about Chrome is it uses its own embedded version of Flash and it doesn't always get updated like the standalone version. So watching movies in Netflix in Chrome makes the cpu/gpu temps get real hot whereas in Safari it's quiet & cool.
I'd blame the user in that situation. Chrome is probably the fastest launching browser and quickest to render a page. Safari is pretty damn close, but I have to barely give it to Chrome.
delete Safari's icon cache using the Finder, open your user folder, navigate to ~/Library/Safari/ and move this file "webpageIcons.db to the Trash.
Now go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file com.apple.safari.plist to the trash.
Safari: Unsupported third-party add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues
Last Modified: February 18, 2011
Unsupported third-party add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues.
Unsupported third-party add-ons may add features to Safari or change its appearance. If you use unsupported third-party add-ons you may encounter issues such as these:
• Safari quits unexpectedly
• Safari runs slowly
• Safari is unable to download files
• Other unexpected behavior
Note:*This article does not apply to Internet Plug-Ins such as QuickTime, Java and Adobe Flash. It also does not apply to Safari Extensions.
Safari 4 (Mac OS X 10.6), Safari 4 (Mac OS X 10.5), Safari 4 (Mac OS X 10.4), Safari 5 (Mac OS X 10.6), Safari 5 (Mac OS X 10.5)
Use the add-on's uninstaller, if possible
To resolve the issues: Quit Safari, then remove any unsupported third-party add-ons you've installed (see if the add-on's installer includes an uninstall feature).
Then, open Safari again. If this fixes the issue you were having, check the website of the software's developer to see if there is an updated version available, or avoid using the add-on.
Manually uninstall third-party add-ons
If the software doesn't have an uninstaller feature, quit Safari and try manually removing the third-party add-on files. These files are usually installed in one or more of the following locations:
• /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/
• /Library/Input Methods/
• /Library/ScriptingAdditions *
• ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/
• ~/Library/Input Methods/
The first four locations listed are in the root-level Library on your hard disk, not the user-level Library in your Home folder. The tilde (~) represents your Home folder (choose Home from the Go menu in the Finder).
If the issue is resolved by removing items from the above locations, return the items one at a time and test Safari. That way you can determine which of them is causing the issue. Once identified, remove the problematic item and put the others back. Check for updates to the items that are found to cause issues, or report the issue to the add-on developer.
