I'm running IE 5.2.2 on Mac OS 10.2.4 and it crashes numerous times a day. And I must hard reboot the computer. VERY FRUSTRATING! I've tried Safari, but it seems to crash the computer, too.

I have had very few crashes in other applications. Seems to be only on IE or Safari.

What's the deal?? Thought OS 10.2 (Jag) was supposed to be a big improvement. Having second thoughts.

I upgraded to IE 5.2.2 and it won't even open. What is going on? I have a G4, top of the line, and IE will not work!
die hard for OSX

The best results with stability so far is using the new browser called "safari". Pages load faster, has NEVER crashed on me yet, and I have multiple apps running at all times. Seems apple is on the right track with this app. although still a beta version, I fully support it and suspect that it will leave IE ans Netscape in the dust.

VERY user friendly

I have switched to IE 5.2.2 a couple weeks ago and I have had a few crashes here and there. Now, all of a sudden, I can't use it for more than 2 minutes without the app "unexpectedly quitting". I have been using Jaguar the entire time, so it's not that!

IE has never been stable.
I leave it running all day and periodically check my own forums, selected weblogs, VersionTracker, MacSurfer, what-have-you. I never have had fewer than 8 crashes a day. Not counting a few times when the rainbow-pizza/circus-blob-of-death comes up and stays up for minutes, and I have to force-quit.
It never takes the machine with it, thankfully.
Other annoyances:
- IE loses key events and clicks _very_ often.
- If a pop-up pops up, it makes sure to load most of it before a click on the close button works, and you can do nothing else while the pop-up's loading. If the Internet connection goes down at that time, it will take minutes to time out.
- If a site is unreachable, the URL isn't put into the address bar, so if you have more than one window loading, you never know which one had the problem.
- A pop-up or pop-under can change your carefully set window size. I wish there were a way to turn the #$%^& things off.

major mistake to upgrade my iMac 400Mhz from 10.1.4 to 10.2
Crashes (happen often) take down all other apps, best of all: can't switch of machine via the menue. Soon I will pull the plug on this thing.

I upgraded from 10.1.4 to Jaguar recently and my system has become slightly unstable.

Often my computer doesn't come out of standby, just shows a blank gray screen and I need to reboot.

I am unable to even use MSIE 5.2, it works for about 2 minutes and then always freezes on me. Other apps crash more than they used to under 10.1 too...

Speed has improved on my dual G4-1000mhz but stability has decreased, I hope there will be some proper bug fixes soon.

Yup, control+click seems to be the 'click of death' for IE these days...sigh. I'm using moz 90% of the time anyway, I'm just annoyed that when I do use IE, it crashes. That is not the expected behavoir...

J. Gull - Say it ain't so!

I have to admit, I think Jag has slowed down my 600MHz iBook too. Though the finder is more perky in list view. This is kind of disappointing.

I hope it's an optimization thing. That is, I hope someone will discover the GUI tweaks that make Jaguar running relatively faster on the iBooks.

I've been getting a fairly consistent and repeatable ("unexpected...") crash by control-clicking any link in IE 5.2 on Jaguar. Possible differential diagnoses might be Kensington mouse problem or a result of hacking on IE (to make Google the location bar search engine).

On an unrelated note, that beloved hack (via bOING bOING) no longer works. :-( Anybody got a meta-hack?

It appears to be less stable than it was, but I don't know if it's Jaguar or the IE update of a few weeks ago; I installed both around the same time.

Also, there seems to be a refresh bug, where I frequently have to reload pages, scroll them around, or mouse over text to get it to appear.

I found that IE seems to crash or exhibit buggy behavior somewhat more under Jaguar than it did under 10.1. However, I'm having some issues with Jaguar in general -- namely, it's running slower on my iBook 500MHz than 10.1 did (go figure). However, I should not that IE has only crashed on Jaguar once (in a week) and perhaps crashed once or twice in several months of 10.1 use.

To be true, IE started crashing after beeing updated to OS X 10,1,5.

Since last week, it crashed two/three times a day: I figure what could happed with the "Jaguar" release !
