Safari on my home Mac Pro keeps hanging.. have to force reload pages. Quitting app doesn't seem to help. Also sluggish sometimes on webpages. Was checking speedtest to see if there was some kind of issue.. and it took forever to get my ping and then hung on the download portion of the test. Eventually completed the test... after I walked away. Restarted router... no change. Reset Safari... no change. Latest version of Safari allowed with Snow Leopard.

Try it with Firefox to see if it's network or computer related.
I may have figured it out. I noticed that when it hangs I hear a lot of disk activity. Checked memory and it was maxed. Frikkin Capture One and PS CS6 hogging all the ram. Mac Pro still has the 6 GBs of ram I put in it originally... prolly time to upgrade... but this Macs' ram is still pricey. This was the Mac that does better with ram installed in groups of 3.. even though there are 4 slots. Crucial wants 57.00 for a 4 GB dimm. http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/scanview/F3162D5931D926C3
"Tri-channel memory configuration gives a slight performance advantage. The DDR3-1066 DIMMs for the Mac Pro will run 1-3% faster if they are installed in matched sets of three (tri-channel). You may add DIMMs in any combination, but performance will suffer slightly if the DIMMs are not matched 3x at a time." Wow.. I feell for that. I read (years ago) the mac would run faster in trichannel config. 1-3%?? Pffft! Also I would need to upgrade to at least Lion to see 8 GB dimms. "8GB and 16GB modules: In order for the Model ID 4,1 to recognize and utilize 8GB or 16GB modules, your OS must be upgraded to Lion or above.
Non-Mixable 16GB DIMMs: 16GB DIMMs can ONLY be used with identical 16GB DIMMs from the same batch (i.e. ordered at the same time.)
Matched Modules: The Ramjet kits for the Mac Pro DDR3-1066 contain a matched set of DIMMs. The kit will consist of identical brand/model/spec IC's. They will be from a single batch, and will have matching series numbers. This ensures maximum performance, and perfect compatibility.
PC3-8500, DDR3-1066, 1066Mhz, 8.5GB/s Bandwidth, CAS 9-9-9-24, 5ns Cycle Time, ECC, Dual Rank, RoHS Certified, 256x72, 1.5V, 240pin DIMMs"
I'm thinking I may just go with one more 2 GB dimm for 40. BUt then they wouldn't be "matched".
MM has them as DDR3-1066 DIMMs But Crucial shows them as DDR3 PC3-8500
