    Safari 4.0.5 released
    Overnight Apple has released Safari version 4.0.5 for Snow Leopard, Leopard, Tiger and Windows. Let's hope this version is somewhat more stabler than earlier versions of Safari 4.

    Don't know what you're talking about, S4 has always been stable for me.

    I don't know if others with better machines will see it, but this update has made a HUGE difference in graphic "smoothness" for my poor old GMA950 chipset. Scrolling, Top Sites in particular -- smooth as silk now, now video oddities when switching.

    Oh also just noticed this -- plug-ins (like Evernote and 1Password in my case) load WAY faster now.

    Of late the main Safari crashes have been all on sites using Flash. Apple has admitted it's Adobe's Flash Plugin causing all these crashes. I have had many mostly on you tube. Adobe has to address this. Otherwise Safari has been quite stable for me.

    The little bit I use Safari has been largely positive in terms of stability as well. Harry, are you experiencing problems with Safari when viewing Flash content perchance (or a page that requires any plugin I guess)?

    Also, why would I have to restart OS X to update Safari? Seriously? It's a good thing I don't use it.

    EDIT: dtrav beat me to it! I must learn to type faster.

    Van, Sorry!

    I saw the Safari crash words and the first thing that came into my mind was FLASH so had to post a dig at Adobe the the Flash crashes!

    I even stopped eating my very tasty Pot Roast I made for dinner to attack Flash!

    Flash was the first thing that popped into my head too. I can't say this for certain (nor do I want to generalize) but I'm sure 90% of browser crashes are due to plugins. This is where Chrome and the new Firefox have it right - plugins in a separate process so the whole browser doesn't go down.
