    I made the mistake of "upgrading" to Safari 5. It is slow and it crashes whenever I click in the Google search field, (for example to use the snap back feature or to search with another search engine). Is there a way to get Safari 4 back? I use Leopard 10.5.

    Safari 5 is faster.

    Those with problems typically have unsupported extensions installed.

    you could probably reinstall it from your instal disc.

    Consultant, you are right: The Glims extension was guilty for the crashes arising from the search engine field. Glims has now updated its extension for Safari 5 and it's available from their Facebook page. I installed it and now Safari crashes no more.

    Those who don't know how useful Glims is should check it out.

    Mine doesn't crash but it does seem a tad bit slower than before
