Viasat Browser crashing on Mac

I like Viasat's browser and have been using it everyday for several months now.

Past couple weeks it crashes often
Sometimes I will launch it and it will immediately crash and I have had it crash 3 times in a row immediately after launching.

Then I can go for a day or two with no crashes

Any other Mac users experiencing VS browser crashing?

Because it is built on the Chromium platform, have you had any issues with the Google browser crashing on the Mac?

I used to use Chrome before switching to VSB

You might want to try it under similar browsing circumstances. I don't use it so I can't help (I use open source Mozilla so therefore no VSB for me). I wish Viasat had used Mozilla for their browser base. I think it would be even better.

Bob, 

I suggest reporting this to browser@viasat.com.  That email goes directly to the team that develops the browser.  They're pretty good at working with you on these issues.

Hi Bob,
I'm on the browser development team and if you send us an email at browser@viasat.com, someone will get back to you.  I don't think we pushed an update out in the last couple of weeks; have you tried clearing your browser cookies and cache (from beginning of time)?
Thanks!
