Is it Safari, iOS7 or both which sucks big time?

    The title is slightly sarcastic. I have no quarms with the iPhone 5s I'm using here in Japan (on AU), nor do I share in the negativity of the iOS7 redesign (colors, fonts, etc). And lastly, I don't have any issue with Safari as a browser.

    BUT ... BUT ... BUT ...

    Since I've gone from the iPhone 4s to the iPhone 5s, there is one problem and one problem only - the damn Safari browser crashes 4 out of every 10 times I use it. By crashes, I mean I can be viewing a webpage, scrolling in one or typing in the address bar to get to the next webpage, and then Safari just quickly closes in the blink of an eye, and I'm back to my main screen of apps.

    I believe I read about this being an issue in general with iOS7, Safari and the newer iPhones (whatever combination of blame), but can't quite recall where I read it, if it was a widespread thing or a forum where a handful of people were complaining about it.

    Can anyone refresh my memory? If widespread, is there a fix or a fix coming that anyone's aware of?

    I've had safari crash on my IPad but not as often as you. I'd do a full restore and setup. I guess it's happened a handful of times where Safari crashes to the desktop...I expect a fix in IOS8

    Lol, seems cynical.... The rest of us are expecting the fix in iOS 7.1.

    It could be iOS7 . Music crashes on my iPad since updating to iOS7. A few other Apple apps too.
