    The new safari update has been horrible to say the least. Never once did my safari crash as much as it does now. What's up with that?

    I don't know how so many people are having trouble with Safari. I regularly use 3.1 on 10.4 and 10.5 and haven't had any significant problems to speak of.

    Coming over from Windows I'm a Firefox guy, myself. I've tried to fall for Safari, but I keep going back to FF. I've never had any problems with it, I just...don't feel attached to it.

    I'm using 3.1.1 and haven't had any problems. It crashed once the other day and I get the RWoD from time to time but that's about it. It's performing significantly better than it was when Leopard was first released.

    I too had problems with Safari on 10.5, pages were not being loading and Safari is frustratingly not supported on some websites. I tried using Firefox, but found that it was generally not was fast as Safari, so now use both. Look forward to the day I can just use one.

    Never had any problems with it. Been using it since Panther and aside from the very, very occasional (hardly ever) crash it's been great.

    I had some problem with Safari a few version back, from now. Most of all problem came from the flash plug-in in my case. Just reinstalling the last version of Flash had solve a lot of problem. Maybe this may help. Check what page cause the more problems in your setting.

    It might be a good idea to disable plugins (Prefs > Security) and try it for a while. I've been using it since the first public beta in 2003 and haven't had any "crashfests".

    Why I didn't switch to Safari (yet): No bookmark syncing like Firefox's Foxmarks

    I like Safai, My ONLY complaint is not being able to get Hotmail though it.

    I love safari. It's just so nice. I dont understand how people can use firefox or anything else. It looks no where near as nice, i find safari faster, and a lot easier to use. I've tried both firefox and camino, and threw them out after 5 minutes just for there look and how slow they were. No problems either. On the latest version, and very stable.

    I love Safari too, but finally switched over to FF. All the available plug-ins just make it better.

    And if you think Safari is faster, try a FF plug-in called Faster Fox. Makes FF fly.
