    I am having an issue with Safari crashing too frequently. Literally safari stops responding after about 5 minutes of use, and there is no way to start it responding without doing a force quit. Basically Safari is unusable on my Macbook 1.3ghz.

    This has been occuring since I migrated my mac from the MBA11 to the Macbook.

    All other applications appear stable. Chrome is also stable.

    Any advice?

    My only suggestion (and probably quickest solution) is a reinstall. I've been using Safari exclusively since I got the MacBook on the 15th and it's been great. I don't think I've ever had to force quit it once.

    Try disabling all extensions
    Try deleting all the cache files
    Try using WebKit instead (if you are a web developer it has much better laid out dev tools)
