Increase Safari's page loading speed
Authored by: zgafford on May 19, '04 05:11:36PM

Safari resets the .plist file on every exit. I have tried 3 times and it always resets the file the next time Safari exits even if you modify the file with Safari closed.

Increase Safari's page loading speed
Authored by: robg on May 19, '04 05:31:23PM
That's not been my experience; here's a snippet from the Terminal on my machine:
$ defaults write WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay 0.25

[Ran Safari, loaded a few pages, quit Safari]

$ defaults read | grep WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay
    WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay = "0.25";
I repeated the test a few times, and the value never changed from whatever I set it to...

Because it's a string?

I haven't tried this hint yet, but could it be because the value you stored with the initial
defaults write
was a string and not a float value as stated in another reply here? The original post used "real" XML tags, though....

Increase Safari's page loading speed

I tried the above to speed up the safari. I too noticed little difference, but what happened after saving the textedit, the icon in the safari that allows you to return to home page disappeared!! Any suggestions on how to get it back??
