Like Scott Paul Dunham, my Safari loads fine. At peak load times when the Cow is really busy, the pages load very quick but the ads can take a bit to fill in. The pages are still very fast but the ads can be slower as they are served off of another server that handles just the ads -- it's a dual Opteron, whereas the pages themselves are coming off a quad Opteron.
I don't mind the ads loading slower than the text. It's where there is a thread with several responses. For me it takes a real long time the green box with the T to load in. On my Pc, the load time is a lot shorter. In fact, I can click where the T will show up and be able to select it before it does. Not on my Mac.
