Hi,
The problem is that my system freezes randomly while I'm using Safari, Firefox, or Chrome. By freeze I mean the screen goes static and doesn't change and I can't use the keyboard or mouse. My only solution at this time is to hold the power button. The problem is random and difficult to reproduce.

This has happened numerous times while streaming video or audio, once on google reader and once on google maps.

I ran Apple Hardware Test and it said everything was fine.

I have repaired my disk permissions and I have reinstalled all of my web browsers. So far nothing has fixed he issue, in fact it's happening more frequently these days.

Could this be a problem with Java, or my graphics driver, or a kernel crash?
