I'd settle for:

* Fixes an issue that could cause endless goddamn beachballing for no apparent reason

Waddaya mean? I'm very happy that Flash hogs 75% of my cpu!

I love jerky video and an unresponsive UI.

Clearly you're not using version 10.1

Sadly, the "endless goddamn beachballing for no apparent reason" issue is not related to Flash at all…

Oh yes I am!:)

Edit: Actually thinking on it, I've just recently moved from 10.5 to the latest 10.6.
Would the Flash player 10.1 cross over to Safari with a change of OS?

Any how I've re-installed it, so it's suck it and see I suppose.

Maybe not, but cpu hogging Flash, and beachballing, make for a very yummy computational experience.

Please excuse my ignorance, but is this related to memory leaks?

I usually get the beach when i click bookmarks on the MB.
My POS PC at work is very stable though.

Alas, it doesn't benefit the Mac Pro or the MacBook Air.

I periodically switch to Chrome but Safari's superior 1Password support always lures me back. Once they get it fully supported I will probably ditch Safari for good.

edit: oh hey, it looks like it's getting closer. Will have to try it tonight :)

Do you support Google Chrome? (http://help.agile.ws/1Password3/google_chrome_support.html)

Seems to have fixed my beachballing. Safari 5.02 seems very fast and responsive.

However this could also be due to having installed a seagate momentus xt drive earlier in the week. I havent touched safari for weeks until the update.

Every since 5.0.1 my Safari has been rock solid. Good to see this might eliminate the odd crash once a week haha. My web browsing isn't very intensive so I guess thats why. Flash is improving though I must admit since 10.1 its been much better but ClickToFlash is good seeing as I rarely use flash for more then YouTube.
