I really wonder why Apple makes its "premium" browser behave like this ... quite terrible ... (latest version, latest OSX, latest MB pro). Happening every 2-3 minutes

Hi there, I hope this will work on your Safari.

Usually, when I encounter a problem with Safari I first try to clear its history and cache/website data.
Please give it a try. ( thought the cons here is your Mac will 'forget' the autocomplete information you are probably used to it filling in, such as passwords and login details. )

Open Safari > On the menu bar , click Safari > Click Clear History > choose All history ( recommended ) > click Clear History

This will clear the history and website data stored on your safari

Well, since it is freshly installed just for few days on a new Macbook Pro, it will not be the issue I suppose ... And it behaved like this on the other computers as well

Safari crashing regularly is not normal behavior. To have it happening on more than one machine is especially abnormal.

Along with the clear History suggestion you could try:

Enable the developer menu so you can "Empty Caches" --


Try after disabling extensions and plugins. If better, reenable them one at a time and test to find the problem child --


Boot into Safe Mode and test, then boot normally. Note if there's any difference between them. (Sometimes problems can be fixed just by booting into Safe Mode then booting normally. Safe Mode has some maintenance and repairing abilities.) --


Create a new user account for testing purposes --



If you're using iCloud to sync between your machines, try disabling that for a bit at System Preferences > iCloud

Hmm, maybe this should be rather Apple's job ? Or how much will Apple pay me to spend time trying to fix their highly expensive toys and systems that one would expect just working well and normally ?
