Often when opening a new link (say going from the front page to a story page on a news website) Safari just stops with the blue bar half way across. Sometimes if you come back later it has loaded and sometimes not. Ditto, sometimes if you refresh the page it loads second time, sometimes not.
Not all sites do it, and neither is it always the same site (although the NZ Herald site seems very prone).
It makes browsing very frustrating!
I have tried the common things such as restarting the VDSL modem (we are on VF naked), switching off plug-ins in Safari and even running Namebench to see if there were better DNS options.
Does anyone have any other ideas? I tried Chrome and that is sometimes better and sometimes the same, so it may in fact be a non-browser issue.
