Why don't I ever receive any replies from the OW dev team? I paid good money for a browser which is not stable!
I'll ask again - is there anything consistent about the thread that has crashed? Or is it different each time? (OmniCrashCatcher will open at the thread that crashed so this should be fairly easy to spot).
Does it happen after visiting any particular sites at all?
Do you have any system hacks, contextual menu items and/or input managers installed?
Next time a crash occurs, copy and post the log here (in the code tags - put [ code] [ /code ] around the text with no gaps between the brackets and each "code") before sending it in to OmniGroup.
I know this doesn't help, but other than a one off crasher which turned out to be caused by a glitch in the OS that was solved by restarting, I have had only 9 crashes since June and I test all the sneaky peeks and betas, and use OmniWeb a lot every day.
FWIW, those 9 crashes include testing sites identified by others here at the forum as automatically causing OmniWeb 5.5.x to crash so it would be even less than that as they aren't ones I would typically visit. However, it is possible you are running into one of those sites or a site exhibiting similar problems each day (we all browse differently), but there could be other reasons.
