Extend Safari timeout beyond 60 seconds Web Browsers
Tired of Safari timeout when you're waiting for a database query, a large upload, etc? SafariNoTimeout 1.0 (Released: 4/16/2003) is a hack that changes the Safari 60 second connection timeout limit to be 10 minutes instead; for Mac OS X 10.2 or newer.

It would be awesome if someone did the same thing for mail.app. sometimes I get flooded with a few thousand spam and mail times out and thinks it can't reach the mail server.

Sounds like someone needs a new email account...

That is mean ... consider when you have the best email account in the world, but you're connected
via a mobile (GPRS or CSD) link, and not getting good radio link to the nearest base station. When
TCP connections take a minute or two to establish, I wouldn't tell the person to get a direct satellite
link to a higher TOS high-priced ISP.

This is cool. Now all we need is a way to have more than four simultaneous open connections -- so that while four tabs are waiting for data, we can open more. Or can download four files at a time while still browsing.

Any takers?

The problem is ... its an app enhancer ... I bought Fruit Menu, an app enh too, add to disable it, it's messing so much my comp ! Mess the system of all my friends ... :/. Without App Enh, I start Safari in 4 seconds, with App Ehn, Safari can take like 20 seconds to start ! :(

defaults write com.unsanity.snt Timeout 300

The above command used in the Termiinal.app would set the timeout to 300 seconds.
