    Scroll down to bottom and safari will crash.

    Tried on both MacBook and iPhone. None of them work.

    Any idea how to scroll down and see comments?

    Safari 6.0.4 crashes, Chrome 29 encounters an error on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, Firefox 21 Opera 12.16 do not and seem to load everything fine, including scrolling.

    Nice feature they got at CNN, but I reported it via this channel (Errors > Technical), maybe you can too and also state the browser versions (Mac and iPhone) you use and the Mac OS X and the iOS versions they run on. It makes it easier to troubleshoot a problem, when versions are known.

    I loaded that page in Safari 6.0.5, then scrolled to the bottom -- no crash.

    I even clicked "load more posts" (for Disqus) -- still no crash.

    What Safari extensions/add-ons do you have installed?

    I'm using Safari AdBlock and Ghostery.

    If you aren't using any ad-blocking, I'm wondering if the crash is from Safari choking on some "ad element" being loaded behind-the-scenes...

    They have fixed it, as it seems, probably before you were able to test it and have not seen the results the OP and I have seen.
