    MacRumors causes crashes.

    MacRumors is causing my iPad Air to crash consistently every time I close the window or click on comments within articles and especially when I click on forums tab. Could just be safari, other browsers for iOS do not crash.

    My Air (on iOS 7.1.2) did it on MacRumors too.

    I reopened the app to the same page after 5 times in a row and it crashed each time. I'm thinking about selling it.

    Safari tends to crash on certain websites when Javascript is turned ON. Macrumors will crash if JV is enabled which is why I turn it off unless a website requires it. As i've said before Safari needs a rewrite because other webbrowser's tend to be more stable.

    My Air 1 crashes a lot especially on websites such as guardian on independent.co.uk. It's a real pain because Apple used to be miles ahead of everyone in tablets and phones now their software seems to be mostly bloat ware and buggy

    Turning off JavaScript helps with problematic websites that crash on the iPad.

    cnn.com has turned into a big giant exercise in "There was a problem ..." with my Air. Macrumors crashes a lot, but every other page on cnn, with their bloated pages causes problems.

    It appears Javascript is the new FLASH. :mad:

    My biggest problem regarding the crashes etc while using the iPad is Safari related. I can eliminate most of them by turning off JV but I don't have any of these issues in Android and especially using Chrome. That's the frustrating part. :rolleyes:

    I only enable JV when a website requires it. Most websites offer limited functionality with it turned off. I find 90% of the websites I visit don't require JV enabled.

    I enabled JV in my settings and Macrumors crashed twice with "low memory" errors in my log. Turning off JV allows me to access MR with NO problems.

    With JavaScript off it crashes even more :(.

    Steve Jobs will be turning over in his grave at the thought of this.

    Just the opposite for me with all my iPad's and websites also load much faster. :)

    and how many sites works well without javascript? very practical solution... not! air2 doesnt crash so often as Air used to crash all the time. i had it before ios8, and it was a junk already then. just get rid off that carbage and buy air2 or something else. why bother to waste your time and e.g. playin with settings, turning off/on a basic function that should work flawlessly...

    would love to get rid of this 'garbage' but problem is I value my Jailbreak - or soon to be jailbreak as I am on a version which can be jailbroken!

    It works for me so I don't mind but you're right it should work flawlessly. It's been a problem with Safari since I first bought an iPad. None of these issues occur with Android devices. This is one of several reasons why i'm considering a Surface 3.

    No website crashes on my Air, MacRumors or any other site I visit.
