The last time I found Safari's performance unbearable, I saw the same symptoms (i.e. fast rendering, slow UI actions) I cleared my autofill data; it made all the difference.

    I took a little excursion over to preferences. Much to my horror, I had the "Other forms" box checked, which I don't ever remember doing. Sure enough when I hit the edit button, a long list of sites appeared. I cleared them all.

    As I recall, this is a security risk too, right?

      Not directly, only if you’ve stored sensitive data and someone else gets to use your Safari setup. So it’s safer to not keep this data logged, but there’s no reason to panic about it if you do.
