Which Web browser crashes the most?

Quote:
Sauce Labs, an Internet software testing and development company, specializes in automated testing for mobile and Web applications by delivering a test environment that accommodates over 150 browsers, operating systems, and device platforms. In the course of all that testing they've gotten to know which ones break the most and which ones break the least. Now, for the second time, Sauce is revealing which browsers can stand the test of the Web and which ones buckle under the strain.

Surprising.
I get around a crash per week on the firefox have my netebook running Linux Mint AND on the firefox I have on my main rig.

I guess it's the addon's fault then. Oh well, the price of power...

Yeah, anytime firefox crashes its almost always a firefox addon. Best way to tell is to run firefox safe mode for awhile.
No crashes? It's an addon.

Once you figure out its an addon, enable 1 addon one at a time for a few days until you crash. The last one you enabled is the problem.

I used to use Nightly Builds of Firefox and now I have switched to the Firefox 24 Beta 4 and I found that Firefox 23 Beta 1-10 crashed on me at least twice a day. 24 is doing better.

Not surprised,
I never get any crashes,
But of course I use windows and internet explorer friendly utilities,
Java and Flash player have never self updated well and then you get into failing/ or outdated security suites,
Sure is easy to blame a browser for a crash.
Safe mode would point to a funky add-on in any browser if there was no crashing.

I mostly use FF, but I need IE for a few things. Neither crashes
But that Flash plugin! This has to be the buggiest software on the planet.
