    Wondering if this is just me, can you please try it out and post back here?

    On two different websites, one of which is Macrumors, when I try to insert an HTML link into a message using the forum interface (the little globe and chain icon) Safari instantly crashes out. This also happens when I try to use Chrome. This is totally repeatable, it happens every time.

    This behaviour is present on both my iPad and iPhone, both running iOS 8.3. It did not occur on the previous version of iOS.

    Gotta be in it to win it
    On 5s, Safari crashed in desktop mode. On iPad the latest release of chrome froze.

    OK, not just me then. Can somebody that understands this stuff please explain does this mean the bug is in iOS itself because it happens in Safari and Chrome? I don't get how an operating system bug can cause crashes in different browsers. Or is the HTML code on the website itself borked?
