I am using Awasu 2.01 though this issue has existed for a long time.
I have replaced the viewing control from shdocvw to the mozilla one, and things work nicely, there is just one problem, awasu keeps crashing.
I find the best way for it to NOT crash on me is to hit stop before I change pages in the browser from clicking the list of feeds on the left.
Could awasu please automatically call the stop method evenever a feed is changed and the application shut down. This should help out a lot, but I have a feeling other things could be helping it to crash too.
