    I have a 2012 MBP Retina 2.6Ghz, 16G, 256. I have all the latest updates from Apple, even the latest iTunes as of Wednesday. For the past month, Safari has been crashing constantly and usually relates to "webkit2.frameworks". I have tried repairing permissions, and verifying disks, but it is no help. I have reset safari, uninstall Java 7 but neither helps. I have tried Restore by following the instructions to hold Command-R when booting and then restore by Time Machine backup but that's no help. Also, it is frustrating to have Disk Utility tell you that you need to restore (in red font) and then tell you "HD appears to be ok" (in green font) when you run it a second time.

    I do run 1password and AbBlock but I have been doing so for many months and this is a new problem. This is the fourth mac in the household and I have never encountered anything like this.

    I have screen cap posted so maybe you guys can help. Can people get personal info off of me if I cut&paste the entire crash report?

    I do have an appointment with Apple in a few days but I thought I would try MR first. Thanks for your help.

    I'm having the same problem. Firefox is my solution for now. If I reinstall the system it will work for a while. And then starts dying again.

    The OP uses Safari, so the IGP (Intel HD 4000) should be enough. If yes, the OP can use gfxCardStatus to disable the automatic graphics card switching.

    It is also possible, that a web browser plugin or extension causes the crash. In some cases the dGPU (NVIDIA) causes the problem. At the moment, this looks like a software incompatibility issue, not like a hardware-related problem.

    Issue solved

    Took it to Apple Store and they ran a full Diag test and it was bad RAM on the logic board. It would have been a $600 part + labor repair but was covered by AC. They gave me a clean ML install and I upgraded to Mavericks without a hitch.
    I could not get the 10.8.5 Supplemental Update or upgrade to Mave prior to the repair.

    Now, my machine is running as smooth as it did on Day 1.
