View Full Version : Safari Constantly Crashing

1st September 2008, 11:12 AM
Is anyone else experiencing Safari routinely crashing - usually on quite intensive sites - for example The Age frequently crashes, as do a number of other sites. This happens pretty much every time I use it for an extended period of time (i.e. over 5 minutes)

My Contact and SMS lag appears to be getting worse, the wait for contacts to load, and particularly to select a letter from the right of the screen is taking 10 seconds or there abouts. Very hard to show your friends how great the phone is when even the simplest of tasks is so embarrassingly slow! :eek:

BTW, I didn't notice safari crashing very often with 2.0 or 2.0.1...

yes I get crashing a lot with smh.com.au (sister site of the age), i notice that it loads quite a lot quicker when you turn off the javascript. smh has a lot of javascript which is probably why it takes a while to load.

occasional crashes...

I get the occasional crash on safari. An App i downloaded (doodleit) is shocking though. If you can run it for more then two minutes your extremely lucky. It's free so I shouldn't expect to much!

I've had Safari crash consistently with these two websites:

Connex Melbourne Trains Australia - Home (http://www.connexmelbourne.com.au)


Metlink - Your guide to public transport in Melbourne and Victoria (http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au)

Which is a shame - since they are fundamentally the same thing - looking up train timetables. I could use iTransit - but it only looks up the next available train/tram etc. I need the whole table to check up available trains....and it sucks when I'm out and about and need to catch a train and wanting to know the next few options..and then to have Safari crash out on me. :thumbdn:

Yeah i get it now and then. Only happens on the info heavy sites like afl.com.au. I hope this gets fixed in the rumored September patch.
