I really don't think that 1 hour is good enough, I think it should be 1 day or never before it crashes. I use the browser for 5-6 hours at a time, so I would like at least that. But then again it is still alpha and a lot can happen before the final release. I'll live with the 1 hour for now.

I currently use 4.7 for long periods of time without it crashing, but thats because I have found - through trial and error - what will crash it and I try to avoid it at all costs. My friends had to switch over to IE because they couldn't keep it running for more than 3 minutes before it crashed. One of them had the browser crash, he launched it again and durring launch it crashed... but that was in another time/place, v5 will be better (I hope).
