I think the title says it all. I've gotten at least 20 kernel panics in the last 24 hours, every single time was when I had safari in the foreground, scrolling a webpage, closing a tab, quitting safari or clicking a link.

Any known fixes?

Are you using Nvidia web drivers by any chance? I just upgraded to Sierra and installed the latest graphics card web drivers, got my first ever kernel panic from trying to close Safari, and a few more after that. Wasn't sure if it was the graphics drivers or Sierra

Yes I am, could be just that.

I'll switch to OS X drivers and see how that goes.

Edit: Nevermind, was using the OS X driver, switched anyway. Can't really be worse than it is now.
[doublepost=1476143047][/doublepost]Switched to the nVidia drivers, got a kernel panic after 3-4 clicks in safari. Back to OS X drivers, even though they don't work all that well either.

So far Sierra really is a piece of crap.
