Possibly increease transfer speeds in Transmit
Authored by: webmac on Nov 30, '06 09:41:23AM

Safari won't download the page faster, but the render time can be shortened if the app is hidden.

There are some javascript benchmark tests, which do heavy layout changes. If the browser is hidden, the changes don't have to be drawn on your screen and the test is finished almost twices fast as with the browser visible... I think Quartz 2D optmizes this; things you can't see, don't have to be drawn... This effect is more measurable on macs than on pcs.
