I've been considering downloading iCab. Has anyone had a relatively positive experience with it?

I'm asking first because my Performa 6400 has undergone 3 1/2 years of intensive use and browser-related crashes too numerous to count and I don't want to kill the machine, not yet anyway.

My experience with browsers has taught me that adding RAM, increasing memory allocation (I give Netscape 40 of the 104 MB I have), carefully weeding extensions, and turning off Virual Memory help in that order.

Now for my 02 cents/rant: Browsers are constructed of large, complex, and highly unstable virtual nitrate crystals. They grow until they run out of RAM allocation or hit some system/extension conflict or tie themselves into a knot and then they just blow.

So I'm wondering if iCab, which supposedly requires less memory, would be more stable. Any thoughts?
