Re: browsers crashing

Hi ya All & David,

whose browsers are falling like bad trousers... (xcuse me, could not resist the rhyme!) ;-)

Give Netscape 7.0.1 a go, she is like a rock & will leave that ancient 4.xx serises for deadage.

Also, Mozila 1.2.x is a very stable beastie too.

Hmmm, how is your ram? Is it just browsers or is it everythang?

With both Mozilla and Galeon, the frequency of crashes seems to
increase with time.  It has got to the point now that they are almost
useless, since they crash on about every other web site.

If I start a new account (or clear out all the "dot" files in my home
directory), it seems to stop Mozilla from crashing.  But eventually
(after several days), it starts to crash again.  This is extremely

Any advice?  Anyone know what might be happening?
