Speeding up Safari

I recently got sick of the Safari spinning ball, and decided to conduct some research to speed up my favorite web browser. After reading numerous posts on the Apple discussion board, I made the following changes to significantly boost page rendering time:

​1. Add Mike’s Ad Blocking Hosts file to /etc/hosts and restart lookupd

​2. Purge the Safari cache from Safari -> Clear Cache

​3. Remove old RSS articles by clicking Preferences -> RSS -> Remove Now

Once these three actions were complete, Safari was back to post install speeds! Nice!
