    Get this weird thing, safari occasionally freezes while browsing and shows a red square. This happens at least twice a week and recently the battery exchange site has been a catalyst. I've reset and deleted preferences to no avail. Sigh...

    Here's a link to a screenshot.

    Weird. Do you have any add ons installed? Have you tried resetting it from the Safari menu? :)

    Well, can other browsers get through to the site when Safari can't? :)

    Okay, maybe create a new user account and check if Safari behaves the same way from there. :)

    the battery site was doing that to me. It occurs sometimes when the server of the website you are going to screws up for a second, it effects safari but not many other browsers

    and by freeze do you mean really freezes and crashes or just a temp freeze?

    That's easily debatable. I've tried it and found it clumsy and trying to be too much. For me, Camino is the best.
