    Safari will take up too much memory because the website is too memory intensive and the SpringBoard will kill it.

    No. Your iPods memory has nothing to do with it. The 2nd gen ipods (8,16gb) have the same CPU... when an application goes over a certain kb usage then the application is killed and you go back to the homescreen.

    For example, if you press CTRL + ALT + DELETE on your windows computer you get a task manager, if you go to processes you can arrange by the processes using the most CPU/memory... think of the applications on your windows computer being closed down to free up the memory/cpu usage.

    that means that the capacity of memory that we can use to browse is lower than 1G?

    You probably didn't upgrade to 2.0, which seems to be less stable overall then 1.1.x firmware, possibly due to slightly worse memory management.

    For those of you who want a solution, your best shot is to recognize and take note of sites that crash Safari, and stop the loading before it finished the next time you visit it. It's not perfect, but it works and will reduce the number of Safari crashes you experience.

    The problem has nothing to do with the 2G version though; it's all firmware.
