    Has anyone had experience with Safari 1.0 freezing up on occasion? I'm running OS X.2.8 on a 12" G4 pbook and, particularly after visiting a "java-intensive" site, the browser starts to slow down dramatically, starts dragging other system resources and just about freezes up. With some time, I am able to finally kill Safari and release its stranglehold.

    I've tried resetting Safari but I'm curious if this is something others have come across.

    I much prefer Safari to Netscape and would rather give up the Internet completely than to use that junk produced in Redmond. So, I slug it out and hope that this is just a bug which Apple will fix with a new update...

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    gizmo, yeah i've had some similar problems. although when Safari froze on me i had a heap (about 15+ tabs open in different windows) of stuff open.

    i also had been DL'ing a fair few desktops... about 50+ and i hadn't cleared the Downloads window. i don't know if that had anything to do with it, but i try not to do that anymore.

    i just try not to put too much strain on Safari and i haven't had any problems since. i don't think there's really any way to 'fix' it.

    i think Apple will fix this in the next update. people have been saying that they rushed Safari 1.0... so hopefully we'll see some improvments in the update.
