Beware Fast Page Loads

Recently I was playing around with OnyX, a tool that allows you to play around with many hidden settings in OSX. One feature that I hadn’t noticed since the last time I ran it (it’s been a while) was a radio button that stated:

Safari Page Rendering: [x] Normal [ ] Faster

Well, I just had to try that one out. Faster page loads, that easy, sounds great.

Please, don’t do it folks. The past several days I’ve had countless Safari crashes, pegging the CPU as it seems this starts running javascript well before the total code is loaded. Several times a day Safari would skyrocket, and nearly take out the machine. Switching this feature back to normal made everything work nicely again.
