    Safari crashes when user agent switched to IE6
    I'm running OSx 10.3 with Safari 1.3.2 v 312.6 and every time I switch the user agent to MSIE 6, it tries to load a page and crashes. Is there a way to fix this? I can switch to all the other user agents with no problems.

    The server you're going to is probably seeing the IE6 UA and sends different javascript (or visual basic script) to the web page, and Safari is choking on it. If you must use IE6UA try disabling javascript, too, and see if that helps.
