Mac OS Lion, Slow Safari browsing but everything else normal.


SOLUTION: Hopefully this helps someone else out.


Close Safari, then open Terminal. Type:


chflags nohidden ~/Library/


You will then be able to see ~/Library in the Finder. Goto ~/Library/Caches/ Delete the Cache.db file. Restart Safari and you should be all set. For some reason the "Reset Safari" and "Empty Cache..." don't seem to be working...
