OK, Great. Any chance you could send me a quick PM? I've got to revise for a bit (Physics exam tomorrow), and I'll probably forget otherwise

It's about a 10% drop in speed. Could be worse!

Remember, you are in the UK and I am in the US. It may be better in the UK. Find someone to test it for you.

This is a US based server. A 10% Drop in speed isn't bad at all.

It uses the WebKit architecture just like Chrome does, but Safari is pretty poorly optimized for the PC.

Basically you should use Chrome on PC and Safari on OS X, not the other way around.
