Hello I feel my bookair are more slow than usual, especially surf in internet, I use Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

How can optimize the OS?
How can I delete all the cache, temporary files,... from the internet browsers?
Has the system some utility to measure the speed and now if is normal or slower?

Thanks.

Activity Monitor or Top may be useful in determining what is causing slowness.

Activity Monitor is in the Utilities folder in your Applications folder.

You can clean up caches with the freeware Onyx:  http://www.titanium.free.fr
