Apple Safari was crashing, now it appears to be fine.
Apple’s Safari browser appears to in working order after experiencing some issues worldwide this morning. Searching from the address bar in both iOS and OS X was causing the browser to crash in some instances.
The issue seemed to be connected with the browser’s search suggestions feature. Disabling the feature seemed to be an effective workaround. However, not everyone was affected. The issue appeared to be connected to “only people whose Safari suggestions data storage updated during early AM hours” according to BuzzFeed News.
Apple Developer Steven Troughton-Smith confirmed over his Twitter account that the bug was fixed.
