The issue appears to be related to auto-complete for search in the address bar, and appears to happen only when Google is set as your default search engine.
Microsoft is looking into the issue, but a workaround would be to set Bing as your default search engine or to turn off search suggestions.
Are any of our readers affected? Let us know below.
Update: The issue has now been resolved, though Microsoft has not offered an explanation yet.
Thanks for everyone's patience while we investigated! We believe this to be resolved now. We encourage you to revert your browser settings that you may have changed, and let us know if you are still experiencing any crashes typing into the address bar. https://t.co/Icx2qR3UHM
