PithHelmet is an ugly hack. With this method you miss a few, you catch a few you shouldn't, just like PithHelmet, but you NEVER make Safari crash because of it. Oh, but you get some pretty icons and a pref-pane, so that means its worth it...

And I have never had Safari crash because of it. You describe it as an 'Ugly Hack'. Just exactly what do you mean by this? It is certainly nowhere near as intrusive as Unsanities Haxies.

Frankly, some of the "obscurely geeky" ways people tweak Mozilla-based browsers seem more like "ugly hacks" to me than PithHelmet. ;-)
