timeouts in safari

safariicon.jpg While working on the Mac my default browser is Safari, and I'm very happy with it. It is fast, looks good, and its tabs implementation is excellent. However, there was this annoying 60-second default timeout for webpage loading that apparently could not be changed (which I hit often when posting, as a combination of my slow server, lots of templates on my weblog, and movable type's way of doing things, but of course the primary reason is the server speed, no question about it). A bit of searching reveals that this is a well-known problem in Safari, and most of the search results point to a fix: SafariNoTimeout 1.0 which I've just downloaded and installed--and seems to work just fine, even in Safari 1.2.

Now, what I don't get is: have the Safari engineers (which I presume use their own browser) never, ever found a page that took more than 60 seconds to load? Weird.
