I haven't heard anything about this problem before. Try using AdvancedTaskKiller and kill the Web Browser and try running the browser again.
I found that even after a reset of the browser, it still crashes after a dozen or so page loads. I noticed that when it does crash, and I launch the Internet browser, it seems to always take me back to the page where it crashed on a previous attempt (not always google, but also reddit.com and others). It became so annoying to the point where I switched to Opera. Works much better.

I side-stepped the issue by downloading Opera for the Droid, but I prefer the stock browser.
Btw, I'm currently running UD 8.0 with Chevy's 1 Ghz LV kernel. I've used the same kernel for a long time but just switched over to the ROM not long ago. Maybe that's the cause of the problem? Anyone else running this ROM who's getting this problem? I really like the ROM so if I can't fix it, I guess I'll have to find a new browser till the next version comes out (hopefully soon!).
I have had this problem with the stock browser for 3 months now. A specific website causes this (my work website). But it can be ANY website that causes the crash, but one pre-requisite seems to be that its the one i visit most frequently. Several times in a day. Maybe 50 or more times. I can navigate to ANY other URL, but not the one that causes the crash.
Have tried returning the phone to Verizon where they did a complete reset of the phone. After initial power on from reset, went to browser and it crashed again. Then spoke to Tech (level 2) at Verizon who couldn't figure it out either.
I've tried about everything you can think of to clear this... reset phone, cache, browser, remove apps, reboot phone, remove battery, and tens of suggestions from other users.
I have Fennec, Dolphin, and Opera installed on phone too.They work when the stock browser isn't but after a period of use, they crash too!!!!!!! Same way as the stock browser, just goes back to the home screen when trying to access a specific web site.
Even more wierd is that the browsers will just start functioning again , for NO REASON, no reboot, no cache clear, nothing. Just starts working. All browsers react the same way.
Other users at my work experience the same problem too.
Anyone find a fix?! Had this problem on my droid and figured it was just because of android needing more memory. Tell that to my htc thunderbolt, which has 768mb RAM and is having the exact same problem
