in the first release of mavericks, finder has problem dealing with folders contain large number of files, has it been fixed in the latest version (10.9.1)? please post your finding. i know the infinite loop issue in safari has been fixed, thank god! took them more than two months to do that, i was getting more upset every passing day. the released safari 6.1 for mountain lion which had the same issue, i assume they did the same for mavericks.
Actually I almost never had the problem with mavericks and the finder going busy in the large 500 item folder I have, it actually for now seems a bit faster. And as for safari I never noticed anything broken. at least in the how to guide I produced. Take care and hope that sort of helps.
> Actually I almost never had the problem with mavericks and the finder going busy in the large 500 item folder I have . . . i was afraid to hear that. this is a nasty bug for those who care about it, but not on most people's radar screen, that means it may never get fixed. and i can confirm it is not fixed, fortunately, i have the magic of timemachine. so for those who stay with ML because of this bug but are itching to try again, don't bother.
