    Its completely random when it crashes.. It just freezes on loading a website.. At first I thought it was just myspace as it froze twice when I was on there, but then I was just browsing the bbc news website and it crashed again...

    I know its a bit vague but has anyone got any ideas what it could be?

    Try firefox, if the browser keeps crashing try to repair permissions from disk utility.

    If you attach the crash log (as a text file), we might be able to help more (though it's probably unlikely), though if you send in your crash reports to Apple hopefully they can fix the bug.

    I am using firefox at the moment :)

    I just prefer safari as it looks like it belongs to OSX. Its weird as I used Firefox / Flock all the time when I was on PC (and only switched last week!)

    Urr.. Where will I find the safari crash log?
    And I haven't been submitting the crash reports to Apple, as with many years of windows use, I have never seen them do anything with them and never saw the point.. Maybe I should from now on!

    Press Report, it should come up with a crash report, or you might have to click on a more info buttton.

    I use Camino, and I believe you would like it if you tried it. It's based on the same rendering engine as Firefox, but it was built on Mac API's, so it looks more Mac-like.
