    SafariSpeed changes one of the defaults that affects the initial layout speed at the expense of making a page load slower overall, and possibly even layout badly as some elements won't be available until the page loads completely.

    Read for an explanation.

    IME, with the default settings, Safari is now toasting Firefox for page loads, both initial and cached, unless you've also hacked Firefox to use persistent connections and more than the usual 4 requests at once to the server.

    I've read Hyatts blog. Safaris performance increase according to his writing is due to a lot of technical improvement. I think I'm not confused.

    Yep, this was the problem. Makes sense because after the update a Java program I was using no longer worked and another one I downloaded refused to run as well, so it seems to be an issue with 10.3.9. I'll run the Security Update tonight. Thanks for the tip!

    If you get something about "segmentation fault" you should reinstall Security Update 2005-002:

    It seems that there is a problem with Java, if you upgraded to 10.3.9 without having Java 3D and JAI installed.

    Security Update 2005-002 fixes the problem.

    That was precisely my problem too. You'd think the 10.3.9 updater would be smart enough to handle this issue by testing the java installation and updating if necessary. \
