Mine crashed once on DP1 about a week ago, thats it. I have Yosemite on my everyday machine and everything but continuity seems to work great.
Really? I wonder why it is for me on my 2011 air.

Safari was relatively stable on 10.9.2, what I had it on before this.

Make sure you don't have any third party mods installed. Glims for Safari caused me a lot of problems before I removed it in DP1. Safari is rock solid and very fast for me, even better in DP2.

Zero crashes, but the UI feels harsh and slow, and jerky. Hope thats a lack of polish and not the new standard.

Safari in DP 1 was pretty terrible to use. Horrible memory usage, laggy scrolling, unresponsive UI, etc.

But, Safari in DP 2 is pretty awesome. The scrolling is just so smooth! I can sit here and scroll all day. Even Verge which sort of lagged for me in Mavericks, is smooth, smooth, smooth! It's more responsive and it's taking MUCH less memory.

Oh and before I miss this important point: the scrolling is very smooth.

There are some issues still there though like the UI is still sort of lags, the tab view takes some time to get used to, and the animation for it is very slow. The animation for Share actions are very slow too. For example, if I tweet the current link, it takes a whole two to three seconds for the tweet sheet to even pop up for me. So far though, I've not had any crashes or anything.

But at least the scrolling is smooth.

I'm having an issue where images are swapped or turning green. Example would be on Facebook, safari would load in the wrong or swap round users profile icons.

Also it may load an image from a previous website I was on, in place of the site I'm currently on.

Anyone else having this issue or know a workaround?
