    I've noted lately that just occasionally, Safari appears to crash and closes and I have to reopen it. Maybe twice I've had the device reboot out of nowhere. My question is, is the OS supposed to be intelligent in handling of RAM and free it up as needed? That seems to be logical and I'm guessing we will see a patch or two?

    There are a million (ok, more like a dozen) threads about this. Safari frequently reloading tabs, or crashing, particularly on the Air but also on other iOS7 devices.

    Some speculate it is due to increased memory requirements of 64bit A7 on the Air, others dispute that because the same problem is being seen on 32bit devices like ipad4 and ipad3 running iOS7. Pick a side and join the rant.

    Personally, I believe (hope) it is a memory MANAGEMENT issue or even just a Safari issue, as I don't see it happening in other memory-intensive apps... just in Safari itself, so I hope a 7.1 or 7.2 will bring a fix.

    Time will tell. Search for the other threads and you'll find a lot of opinions and discussion.

    Did you call Apple Support and report the issue? Because I would recommend doing so.
