This happens to me CONSTANTLY with Safari, Facebook and Twitter. So irritating. Could it have something to do with the fact that I have a 2 year old 4S or that I'm still running 5.01?

Is programmed obsolescence man. The will make Safari to run crabby on an 4/s to compell u to shell$ out for new hardware. Try the Atomic browser (free), runs smoother than Safari, I like it.

Yeah Facebook is horrible for it. I stopped using it altogether because the app crashes almost every time I scroll down the News Feed.

It's more iOS7 than anything. My iPhone has crashed more in the past few months with iOS 7 than any of my iPhones ever did combined since 2008.

Might be time to reset your phone to defaults, or maybe even update to iOS 7. I suggest a clean install and starting from scratch.

The OP is still running iOS 5.0.1, they shouldn't have any issues with Safari that weren't present before.

Plus the 4s is still a pretty decent piece of hardware.

It's a iOS 7 bug and a fix is in the works so don't blame it on app developers, programmed obsolescence, or anything else you pull out of your ass.

The OP is running iOS 5.0.1...

If you're still on iOS 5 or 6, a good rule of thumb is to avoid updating to "Optimized for iOS 7" app versions unless the developer has crippled the old version (i.e., it'll stop working entirely).

I am on 4s/6.1.3 and Safari starts to feel a little sluggish. Pinch-zoom it and it takes a few seconds for it to come back, same when changing orientation.

I had issues with 6.1.x on my 4s throughout the whole time that I owned it. I sold it and bought an Android phone before iOS 7 came out.

Anyway, iOS 7 had its own share of issues, but it seemed to run fine on my wifes 4s.

i can think of a few:
- consistency typing a word wrong
- stubbing your toe
- overly sticky price labels
- getting the last 2 tic tak's stuck in the container
- the misuse of the word literally
- forgetting a towel in the shower
- not being able to find a parking spot when you are late
- feeling your phone vibrate when it didn't
- your favorite tv show on netflix isn't updated
- trying to guess how much pasta to make
- video buffering
- deliveries being late
- internet being down
- things not working how they are supposed to
