How can I fix slow Safari? What can I do to improve safari speed ? These are some of the general queries being asked by Mac users who know that Safari is the default browser in Mac. It is taken as most fast performing browser and loads web pages faster. But, unfortunately, over time it may go slow.
Experts suggest some easy and quick tips to fix slow Safari performance. Some important ones are mentioned below.
1. Clean browser history and cache
Safari keeps information of all the sites you visit during an interval, in the browsing history folder. Over time, the size of this folder keeps growing and may even crash and affect the overall performance of Safari. You can easily clean history and cache to improve your browsing experience.
2. Reset Safari
When we reset safari, we empty the cache, clear all cookies, erase history and all the auto fill information. It restores our browser to the original settings deleting history, top sites and all the site preferences. It can be done via reset option in Safari menu.


3. Clear Safari Preferences
Deleting preferences can help safari to regain its speed. You can safely delete the Safari Preferences file because these are created every time you open an app. To delete Safari’s preferences Go to Finder > ~/ Library / Preferences and delete the file

4. Remove Safari Extensions which not required

The more number of extensions you have, the more complex your browser would be. So use extensions wisely, make sure to keep useful extensions only, and disable those which you don't use or you think may be causing speed issues.
You can manage extensions (enable or disable) in safari, from Safari’s preferences. To do so, open Safari’s preferences from the Safari menu and go to Extensions tab and turn off the extension you do not use.

5. Check for unwanted Plug-ins

Improper or crashed plug-ins can slow Safari down noticeably. The best approach to overcome such issues is to remove such plug-ins to speed up Safari. To remove a plugin go to Macintosh HD> Library>Internet Plugins>folder. Once the task is completed, relaunch the Safari. If your Safari is still running slow, it is suggested to install latest version of the brower.
