iPhone Safari crashing

Starting yesterday afternoon, Safari on my phone cannot complete loading site pages then crashes. Or sometimes it just freezes and the back button and links don't work. Resetting the phone doesn't cure this.

It was intermittent yesterday but nearly 100% starting late last night. Maybe a new kind of ad feed? I attach a screenshot. In none of the cases does an ad load before it crashes.

  1. I don't know if Melanie is talking about reaching the CH site through Safari, but access through Google using an Android phone hasn't been working for me (or working so wonkily as to be useless) since last night.

    EDIT: And resetting the phone doesn't help.

      1. Chowhound through safari on my iPhone is kaput since last night.

        Its annoying!

        1. Me too!! Me too!! I honestly thought it was my phone flaking out so I haven't bothered to report it. I reset my browser history, cookies etc. I still just thought it was my phone but exactly as you are reporting!

            Haha! That's what I thought, as well jr. My iPhone is a few years old. It's been off and on for me for the last several days, and it's just started acting up again.

          2. Same here.

            iPhone and Safari

            Thanks for reporting, Melanie.
