    lucky you! I'm on my wifi at home, and its estimating about (equivalent hours) 4 and a half weeks to go!

    course, Time Warner might be unhelping too...

    Safari is absolutely, inexcusably, embarrassingly bad.



    The memory leak would take terabytes of RAM if you had them. It crashes every single time without fail if you try to reopen a closed tab but have opened another since.



    Among other problems.

    Safari's not that bad in Lion?but there are some problems which need to be worked out. It performs quite smoothly for me until I start throwing dozens of tabs at it, and then it slows to a crawl. I've continued using it because it isn't bad enough for me to bother with the fuss of using a different browser and I'm expecting Apple to clean up some of the mess.



    I hadn't thought about the Webkit nighties. That's a good solution if the most recent update doesn't address some of the new Lion Safari issues.

    Have to say I've never experienced any of this. Safari takes up more memory than it used to, true, but mine never crashes or leaks memory.



    Still no combo update

    Beats the crap out of me. They want all Mac users to upgrade to Lion (even if costs them thousands)? The rumor back in August was that an incremental Snow Leopard update would include an iCloud preference pane, but this nowhere in sight as of today, and the official word is Lion only. Then we see that Apple is supporting iCloud in Vista, so that's just insult added to injury.

    I don't recall them mentioning delta updates for OS X, only iOS, but I could be wrong there. Even if it were a delta update, I don't think it's unreasonable for this update to be this large. iCloud forces them to change the underlying architecture of just about everything in the system.

    I am just on a residential cable modem and it took less than 10 minutes to download the 888 MB package.

    Just downloaded and installed the 888MB in 10 minutes, about a minutes to go on the iPhoto download. Curious, shouldn't their be an iWork update as well?

    I'll give you that.
  • Any support for the latest generation AMD or nVidia Graphics Cards in MacPro's...? Thought not.

    Could anyone explain the size of this?



    Scrap that actually, I just noticed iPhoto is over 700MB. Why so big?

    Awesome - thanks! I have six Mac's and three different iOS devices to update today so that will really save on my already smoking internet connection!

    Wow. I'm running Lion on a brand new Mini. No problems whatsoever. Actually, there is one. I sometimes go back page after page to the point where I confuse it, but that's more a case of how easy it is to swipe with Safari on a Magic Trackpad.

    Can someone post the 10.7.2 Server combo update? Not appearing in software update.
  • 2oh12oh1 Posts: 476member
    Now that Lion is in the Mac App Store, do we really need combo updates? What's the story there. I've been downloading those combo updates for so many years that I've forgotten why I even do it.

    If you have more than a handful of tabs open it really bogs down. It's almost unusable



    I too am hoping this update fixes it since I am loathe to switch to another browser.

    Imagine the size if it wasn't a delta.
