I have the problem for some time that the Safari when the first time a website is called up takes quite a long time until the page is displayed. I’ve tried everything:
- Delete the cache
- Remove extensions
…and and and.
Then I found in an article, where also this problem was discussed, a reference to the DNS Prefetching of Safari. In Mac the DNS prefetching needs to be disabled using “Terminal” application as explained below:
Disable DNS Prefetching in Safari:
defaults write com.apple.safari WebKitDNSPrefetchingEnabled -boolean false
Enable DNS Prefetching in Safari:
defaults delete com.apple.safari WebKitDNSPrefetchingEnabled
And what can I to say? It was the turbo switch for my safari. The web pages were loaded again fast and displayed in lightning speed. A disadvantage, with regard to the loading time of clicked links I could not determine personally.
Thanks internet for this sensational tip!
