Keep getting more than weekly updates and this keeps crushing.. WTF?

Posted

Updates keep coming almost daily. However, I open 4 tabs with different info and the browser crashed and shuts down attempting to reopen and reload. This has been going on for at least the last 4 updates. Wouldn't it be more efficient if they fixed and tested the update properly before rushing to a quick new release? They've been releasing patches over a worn out NEW outfit.
