    I've experienced several crashes with Safari 5.0, and noticed something about the dialogue box that appears when it crashes. It says something to the effect of, "The problem could be caused by a Flash plugin." Has that dialogue box been around in previous versions of Safari? Is Apple trying to subtly gain support for their view that Flash should no longer be used?

    Yes - been there since Safari 4 (if not earlier). Apple just wants to tell the user that Flash caused the issue, not the browser itself.

    Bad programming causes the Flash plugin to crash.
    Lots of really bad Flash developers out there.
