    Safari in my Mac takes too much time to load pages. Most of my friends told me that several pages runs in background which is the cause of this issue. Is there any method to disable top sites in Safari?

    Re: How to disable "Top Sites" in safari?

    Dear Friend...

    It is simply like changing the default page from existing to new one.
    When my default page has been changed from Google to someone else, then i generally do this:-

    1. Go to your browser first
    2. There you got preferences or customization option.
    3. Tap on this
    4. Now go to your Open start up page or the page which you want to remove.
    5. Now delete the previous page and set your new.
    6. As there is an extension manager in your browser, so you just disable all those page which are running there.

    Close the browser and start again. it won't take anymore time to open and will open only specific page which you want.
    The issue has been resolved now,

    Thank you...
