Displaying Pages Faster

defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay 0.1
defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitResourceTimedLayoutDelay 0.1

Delete HTML Elements

Useful, without AdBlock, to delete HTML elements such as banners and similar spam. This works for CSS too and is thus an excellent way to get rid of spam CSS curtains.

defaults write com.apple.safari WebKitDNSPrefetchingEnabled -boolean false

in a Terminal.
