Haha. Which is another reason why I switched to Firefox as soon as it was
available in a stable form (and why I run anti-malware software every once

Now if they could only fix it so that if one instance of a browser
crashes, they all do NOT crash. What a sad architecture! Ugh! This has
happened enough times to become severely annoying at this point.
