My safari keeps crashing, and everytime it does I hit the "report" button and report it to Apple, but seriously it crashes about every 15 minutes.

I have:
Mac Mini
Tiger 4.1
and I have repaired permissions yesterday and rebooted two times.

any thoughts??

Is it one particular site that it's crashing on? For a while, CBS Sportsline brought down Safari 1.2 every time.

Have you tried emptying the cache and resetting Safari (from Safari menu)?

If that doesn't work, deleting the Safari preference file might also help.

Safari 2.0 (the Tiger version) keeps crashing for me, too. But only once or twice a day, and each time the Close Tab function is the last thing I do before it crashes (most of the time when I hit cmd-W, which is my preferred method for closing tabs, but it has also crashed on one or two of the rare occasions I've hit the (X) to close...).

If your Safari crashes as often as several times each hour, and repairing permissions and deleting the cache, icons and doesn't help I'm afraid you'll have to do a clean install...

I too had the same problem. First I turned off Airport, then I went into Safari preferences where I unselected the Plug-Ins. I don't know which plugin is causing the problem, but this stopped the program from closing on its own.
