    Is Anyone else experiencing this:

    If you go to

    and hit refresh like 2 or 3 times Safari crashes.

    This is on a new Santa Rosa MBP.

    If I check the box that says Launch with Rosetta, it seems to not crash.

    Is this because the shockwave plugin is PPC only?

    Let me know I am not crazy.

    To use Shockwave, you need to emulate Safari using Rosetta. In the App folder, make sure the application is set to start using Rosetta. Adobe hasn't ported it to Intel Macs, yet.

    Does it crash for you loading that page multiple times? I would like to know so I can reinstall to fix it.

    I have the same problem, but it doesn't happen after a refresh - it happens when Neowin loads. Happens on other sites too, such as Yahoo.

    I have an iMac Core Duo, didn't ever do this before but around a week ago it started to do this. A clean install of Tiger didn't fix it, I'm assuming its an issue with flash? I don't want to run Safari under Rosetta, way too slow for my liking.

    safari crashes

    The site has over 60 markup errors and fails the basic w3c validation for xhtml. Safari isn't the best browser for the Macbook, try Firefox which is at least as quick and has better tolerance of malformed sites, and has better ftp function.
