Safari crashing on AppleInsider

Posted:
in Mac Software edited January 2014
I have 10.5.1, Safari 3.0.4 on my iMac (last gen white) and it crashes almost every time I visit AppleInsider web site. Safari is very stable on other sites that I visit frequently. It seems more stable on my home MBP running 10.4.11, Safari 3.0.4. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    AppleInsider is my worst performing site in Safari (10.4.11. Safari 3.0.4). I am always incorrect server response error messages when ever I am surfing the site. Especially when I click the 'Go to first new post' button. And I have also been getting the dreaded 'The server is busy, try again latter' message way to offten.

    I visit AppleInsider every day... Safari is yet to crash.

    Yea, I'm not having the problem either.

    I am. I think it only happens to those using G5's or G4's.

    I'm using a G5 and occasionally a G3. Works fine for me.



    I'm in the UK though so I probably get different adverts to other people. I suspect the problem might be a Flash advert.

    Yes, crashed again, the culprit seems to be some Flash ad. And FYI, I'm on an Intel iMac and in SF area.
