[...] I hate that thing too. These days there is no reason to lock the entire computer while you're opening one application. If I could do something on a terminal in the meantime I'd be less pissed off when Safari is slow to load. Of course, when I start seeing the beachball for Safari, I know it is time to reboot. What I hate far more than seeing the beachball for Safari is the beachball I see without fail whenever my laptop comes out of sleep. I open the top and the display instantly shows the login prompt. But can I type in my password? No, I have to wait for the damn beachball to stop spinning. It takes at least half a minute. And why? Surely graphics must be more complex than accepting keyboard input.
