    Used to post regularly to this site but lately is is miserable using safari or Mercury browser on an iPad. Constantly reloads and hangs up....what's up ? Does it not like my having private browsing/limited cookies?? Or is it the adverts trying to load? I'll check back from time to time....shame, used to run like clockwork.

    I occasionally use an ipad mini 2, without the app, and without being logged in and it works fine. No ad blocker though so I see all the ads.

    A Safari is a journey to see a camel castrator at work, complete with the requisite two bricks. Does it hurt demands the curious? Only when I get my thumbs between the bricks is the informed reply.

    I'll get me mac!

    I thought two bricks was a conversion kit that turned an ordinary camel into a 40 gallon camel for extra desert traversing range. (Hint, apply conversion kit while the camel is drinking....)

    Or as the legionaire's sergeant said " most men use the camel to ride to the local village brothel for sex".
    You may find Firefox better than Safari Norm , some web sites have Safari issues !

    Mine has Sierra as an OS.

    Therefore I'm keeping an open( or empty) mind and am keeping my old Windows 7 as a standby.

    However, isn't Firefox obsolete or obsolescent?

    Cheers

    No Norm Firefox is not obselete , I have not "upgraded" to sierra yet , having been using a Mac since OS 7, after any change I wait for the inevitable dust to settle first.
    I am sure you will love your mac as much as I love mine .

    My next venture is to find a simple home accounts package which is FREE(obviously) and does sterling(£) not engines--Ho Ho.

    Tried it again tonight turning off the private browsing mode but only accepting cookies from this site....better....but still one reload. Not nearly as sluggish. My connection is 50 Meg's download, 20 Meg's upload, so it's not a speed issue. Not a big deal since I dump cookies before and after visiting sites where I encounter this type of thing.
