    Did anyone else find MSN Messenger after installing Safari 3 Beta to crash more then usual?

    Like I would do expose between my applications and it would crash. Did anyone else experience this? I just want to know because when this started I just downloaded Audium and I like it more :p

    Thanks,
    - Barret

    Yes, I did ... As a matter of fact i registered just to post this problem ... Safari 3 must clash with the Messenger because as soon as i unistalled Safari 3 everything was ok with the Messenger :mad: I hope Microsoft or Apple fix this problem soon ...

    it is universal and has been for a long time (microsoft messenger 6.0.2) but even before safari 3.0 adium has always had a better connection than msn messenger. i remember my brother using msn messenger and he couldn't connect to the server a few seconds later he downloaded adium and it connected to the server instantly! i was being sarcastic by the way...

    It's been ongoing for me too if I close a conversation window, it's very unstable.

    I'm downgrading Safari tonight

    It is definitly a flaky beta. I just removed it last night.

    Way too many issues with random sites crashing Safari and random sites appearing strangely.

    Hopefully a fix soon!

    The DMG file you downloaded to install Safari includes an uninstaller

    thanks for this. my msn was playing up too but now i've downgraded it's fine again.

    i tried using adium, it's pretty cool but i couldn't get what i was listening to on itunes to show up, even when i'd enabled the option...so i switched back. bit of a shame really, i liked it apart from that!

    I tried Mercury, hated it, I prefer aMSN over it, aMSN is a bit too much of a hog though

    Looks like the 3.0.1 update was only for Windows, I'll live without the new search feature, then again I mainly use Firefox
