[thelist] Need a browser "crash" test

I've been developing a stand-alone portfolio site for
myself, and decided to go purely with CSS for layout
(believe me, I had no idea how many headaches I was
going to get over this).  After the whole thing was as
done as I figured it was going to be, I downloaded a few
earlier versions of Netscape 4, and discovered that 4.08
and older were crashing when used to view my site.  So I
added a "bail out" warning, with the option to continue
for the brave.

What I'd like is some help determining if there are any
other browsers that will crash while visiting my new
site so that I can add them to the list.  I'm
particularly interested in what Macs see.


Browsers I've checked:
Opera 6.05 (win), 6.1 preview 5 (linux) - ok
Internet Explorer 5.0, 6.0 (win) - ok
Netscape 4.51, 4.79, 6.0, 7.0 (win) - ok
Netscape 4.07, 4.08 (win) - both crash, assuming
previous versions also do
Konqueror (unix) - ok
Mozilla (unix) - ok

Yes, I am aware of exactly which piece of code causes
the crash, but removing it makes the sub-navigation to
the left look like complete crap in the Netscape 4's
that don't crash.
