Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I run a two year old basic 2Ghz Intel Macbook with 10.6.4 installed and I've been noticing a fair amount of browser lag over the last month or two.
By lag I mean quite often (at least once or twice every 10 minutes of use) the spinning ball comes up when I attempt to switch tabs in either Safari or Firefox (both are up to date). This lag can happen for 5-30 seconds. It also occurs quite often when switching programmes or trying to close programmes. I've tried to just run one programme at a time, but that hasn't seemed to make any difference as to the frequency or length of the lag. I have also noticed that it isn't just confined to loading pages that are heavy on photos or videos. Just tabbing between various forums seems to do the trick sometimes
I've had a look at the hard drive using the Disk Utility but everything seems to be running ok. I have about 25% of the hard drive space free.
Any suggestions as to what this might be or how I might resolve it?
