    Lower your OC speeds, this is widely known issue in Froyo. Too high of an OC produces FC from the browser.

    800Mhz-1Ghz should be fine.

    This has been happening to me a LOT lately. I'm running the "stock" 800 mhz kernel that came with CM6.

    Anyone have a suggestion for an alternate?

    Make sure you have enough free RAM that FroYo doesn't kill it. I'm NOT advocating a "keep X MB RAM free at all times" script (it's garbage and hurts your Droid's performance, believe it or not) or a task killer -- just reboot your phone every day or so.

    Also, some pages don't work so well with the browsers in Android. You could try the about:debug trick and set it to desktop/iPhone/Android to see if one of those works better.

    This is what I thought the problem was. I only have about 40m free at any given time, and I think that's the magic number that makes android start killing stuff - like my browser.

    Even worse, from what I've seen there isn't exactly much I can do about the memory size. I have a lot of apps that I need that run services, and that's eating up a lot of RAM (I think).

    There isn't, really. When I check my running apps under the built-in app manager I often have like 20MB of RAM left. When I notice I have over a hundred in the red and nothing I can do about it I reboot. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be anything else to do, but a reboot takes like two minutes and I'm back up and running.
