Not sure what you are talking about. I have a powerbook g4, and my wife has
an eMac g4, and I have to say that safari is the best browser I have ever
used for general browsing and surfing. It is fast, robust, and able to
handle media files without a hiccup. I have not had it crash in the three years
I have been using it.

The really bogus browser was IE for Mac, which, curiously, MS abandoned.
Probably because it was a completely different codebase, as bad as it was,
it was orders of magnitude better than IE for windows.

I use the Linux box, and I prefer Firefox but have found it to be slower than
Safari. One the other hand, it is a fortress against prying eyes that no other
browser can match, IMHO.

regards,

Mathew

Ok, come to think of it, I have had Safari quit with the "this application
has unexpectedly quit" message, on a couple of occasions while starting it
up. I had forgotten because the screen dosen't freeze with a window image
and the computer dosen't lock up. The OS just terminates the process and
removes the PID from the task list. It does this with any app that dies,
quietly, RIP.

Regards,

Mathew
