    Here's the SITUATION:
    In safari, if your working with 20 or more tabs open, that each of them has some or a ton of flash content playing in the webpage (you know, ads, games, etc.) and have flash player 9 installed and running...

    would it crash safari? any sarfari error message that says flash player 9 is unresponsive or "cause safari to crash"?

    i haven't heard anything about flash player 9 the main cause of crashing safari with the above situtation^^

    its easy crash Internet Explorer with the above situtation in just minutes.

    No - you're not mistaken. There IS an issue with Flash 9 release 115 and some websites. I have tried three separate browsers (Safari, Camino and Firefox) on three separate Macs (a G4, an Intel MacBook and an Intel iMac) all running 10.5.1. On some sites these browsers will consistently crash using this release of Flash. I'm not convinced it is related to the number of tabs open as I can get it to crash with just one tab.

    All browsers work fine with release 47.

    And before anyone says anything - yes, I do repair permissions both before and after installing Flash.

    I've got Flash running on Fedora 8, and the ugliness is the same there. Flash, unfortunately, has cross platform ugliness. As much as I hate to say it, I'd love to see the day when Silverlight is taken up - too bad Microsoft is unwilling to make content creation tools for both Mac OS X and Windows - and better yet, give away those tools :)
