Inevitably, sooner or later, support for the Mac OS is going to be  
ended just as support for, say, the Power PC was dropped---as well as,  
more generally, support for 10.4 and 10.5.

It seems to me that the only solution is something along the lines of  
TenFourFox but I have no idea what/who is behind it. But, indeed, I  
have finally switched from Safari to TenFourFox. The latter does not  
support plugins but, at least, does not crash the way Safari does and  
certainly seems to be maintained.

Hopeful regards
