    I dont know if this has anything to do with the Safari download but this just started happening after i downloaded the beta version. Now when on iChat, whenever someone IMs me, it freezes for sever seconds )maybe 10 or so) and then this pops up (shown below) Any ideas? Thanks.

    I dont see how it could be connected. They are two separate apps. But since you mention it... I did have something funky happen with iChat after I installed the beta.

    I believe iChat does use WebKit for "rich text" messages(or I could just be thinking of Adium).

    Generally it's considered a good idea not to run beta software on "production" machines, or at least backup before using beta software. If you're having problems, be sure to report them to Apple.

    Would i be able to do a fresh download and reinstall or do you not think that would make a difference? Also, how did you say they are connected?

    Yes, I have the exact same problem. Reverting to Safari 2 fixes it. It's a bug.

    No problems with iChat here. Been running beta since it became available. Very few issues, so far. Most noticeable issue was with a couple of 3rd party widgets. One's been fixed by the developer, the other two I fixed myself.

    Had one hang while playing Pogo game a few minutes ago, but very hard to say it was specifically related to 3.0. Once in a while, these cropped up in 2.x.

    Overall, I haven't had anything happen bad enough to remove the beta. I'm enjoying the speed - it's significantly faster overall than 2.x.

    edit: The uninstaller seemed to work fine for me also. I reverted back to 2.x shortly after installing the beta, to check something out. Then, reinstalled the beta.

    What else you got? Also, for some reason i dont seem to have flash. I installed it, but then it like dissapears after i close out and then back in. This has always happened, so its not just the new beta, but more things are effected by the beta. What am i doing wrong?
