I've noticed that Safari will download every background image in a
stylesheet regardless of whether that background image is used on the page
you're currently on. This is causing the page to take way longer than need
There are two reasons I can tell it's loading every image.
1) Safari's status bar will read, "Downloading X of 40 images" even though
that particular page only uses three of them.
2) Safari's Activity Log will list out every image loaded, including those
in the stylesheet.
I can't imagine that I'm doing anything wrong in the CSS file. Could this be
considered a "Feature" of Safari, to cache the CSS's images to speed up
pages further into site? It seems to do this in every build of Safari.
