Users are reporting that Safari, the default browser on iOS and OS X, is crashing.

According to reports, Safari’s “Search Suggestions” option, which is turned on by default, are to blame.

The issue was first spotted by Steven Troughton-Smith, an iOS developer, who proposed switching off Safari suggestions as a fix. 

A Reddit thread dedicated to the issue has hundreds of comments from users, as does Twitter. 

Not all users are affected. Business Insider had one issue searching on Mac and an iPhone, but could not replicate the problem on two other different iPhones. We have reached out to Apple to ask about the problem.
