    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.

    Cool. Glad you found the source of the problem.

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

    If anyone has used these procedures, please report on their effectiveness.
