Safari refreshing web page when switching between app or other open pages

Hi All,

I was wondering if there is a way to set Safari to NOT refresh web sites when switching between Safari and other apps or when switching between other open pages in Safari? Most of the time this does not bother me but when doing internet searches or loading movies, this gets really annoying.

Also on this subject, is there a reason that streaming videos won't play after pausing them midway through? If the video plays part way through and then is stopped because the video has not fully buffered I can no resume from where I left off and am forced to refresh the web page.

No, it just does it like that. It's a big gripe about Safari, but to be truthful, I have Atomic and it does it as well if you have it set to open the page last viewed on start.
