My setup:


MacOS X 10.8.2

New Rentina MacBook Pro running on single Thunderbolt monitor




Steps to produce:


1. Open a website in Safari 6.

2. While that website is loading, quickly right-click on a link in the site and choose "Open Link in New Tab"




RESULT: Anywhere from 25%-50% of the time, Safari will completely close down with no crash dialog or warning what-so-ever. When I reopen Safari there is no indication that the browser crashed.




Anyone else have this problem? It is REALLY annoying and I'm about to switch to a different browser permentantly.



MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
