Is your Safari browser crashing?

Safari is crashing for a lot of people due to this odd bug

Apple's Safari browser was crashing for a lot of users early Wednesday, both on iOS and OS X, seemingly due to a bug related to Safari's search suggestions.

Though Apple hasn't made an official statement about the issue, many users pointed out that simply turning off Safari suggestions in the browser's settings will fix the problem.

The option can be found under Preferences - Search on desktop Safari. On the iPad and iPhone, both of which appear to be affected, you can find it under Settings - Safari. Turn off the option, and your browser will stop crashing.

The bug doesn't impact all users, but it seems to affect Safari on iOS 8 and 9, as well as the latest version of El Capitan, OS X 10.11.1.
