Why does Safari keep closing on me?

Safari keeps shutting down unexpectectedly on me and then a window comes up and it says "Safari unexpectedly quit" and i keep sending the report to Apple, but this keeps happening.
its always on the same part of the same site, that i need to view...
so i downloaded Netscape for OSX that was not good. When you scroll to the left (even a little bit) it sends you back to the last page you were on (worst feature ever)
so when i do the 2 finger to scroll up and down i wind up scrolling back a litle bit so annoying...
so i went into system pref and set my mighty mouse to only scroll vertically (which i shouldn't have had to do)
but i digress, why does safari keep doing this to me?
How do I fix this?

Have you tried resetting Safari in the Safari menu? Some sites don't play well with some browsers. Maybe have a look at Camino and Firefox if resetting doesn't help.

Also note that ad-blockers (like PithHelmet) can sometimes cause this behavior on a given page.

It hates you?

Safari can be a bit judgmental sometimes...show it the respect it deserves and it will...

wtf is wrong with me?

Ok so Firefox is having the same problem as safari..... on to Camino!

OK so Camino is the same....... i guess it's back to Safari, just cause I'm used to it.
