Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus

If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.

The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.

5.1.10 freezes constantly, just like the previous version. imac 9.1, osx 10.6.8. No extensions to speak of. Javascript enabled, as this version of safari was supposed to fix that. May have to finally give up on Safari all together!
