My husbands 'Safari' browser on his MAC is running very slowly but only after he opens numerous tabs. The internet takes a long time to load on the additional tabs...while my laptop's (a netbook actually) internet works perfectly. His laptop is new and we just replaced our modem with a brand new one. Wondering if he might be infected or if you have any tips for how to speed up the loading of the tabs? We have tried downloading Chrome to see if it might just be his browser but Chrome loaded just as slow. We tried resetting Safari, fixing the DNS, etc. but no luck. Anything you would suggest?

Thanks in Advance!
