    Anyone using this? I mean it crashes like every 30 seconds, with no way to revert back to the old interface.

    It happens to me regularly. The "what's new" tab is fine, but once I try to get to the inbox, it hangs.

    There are no console messages, but the Safari Web Content CPU usage jumps to 100% and memory is eaten fast (14.2Mb every 2 second, crept up to over 7Gb before I force-quitted), according to Activity Monitor. Then I restarted Safari and got into the inbox immediately.

    This has started happening to me running both Firefox and Chrome. Seems to have something to do with a script. Maybe clearing the cache before starting the browser would help?

    Spinning beachball on Yahoo Mail

    I also have trouble with new Yahoo Mail in Safari. But not all the time - I never know when that spinning beach ball will appear when clicking on a Yahoo Mail link. Once the ball appears it'll go on forever. I force quit Safari or, more recently, I force the page to reload. That's irritating. I don't have any other issues with Safari (5.1 on OS 10.7.1) - I switched from Firefox when I went to Lion and haven't looked back. I also like the new Yahoo Mail interface very much - I just wish it'd work better.
