What is going on with Safari constantly SPODing on me? Almost every page that loads then requires a few seconds of SPOD before I can type (or finish typing) in a form field, or click on a link…what is this?
My guess is that it happens because Safari is looking in its enormous history of Things I May Have Typed Into a Form Field at One Time or Another. This is really annoying. The operation needs to be done in a separate MP task, certainly. More importantly, a much better algorithm/data structure needs to be implemented to avoid such incredibly long waits. (This rant assumes, of course, that it’s this search through some history that’s causing the problem).
I'll post a solution here if I find one.
