Opening This Widely Circulated Link Will Crash Your Browser & Ultimately Your Phone

There is a link that once opened can crash your browser and your smartphone (If there isn’t enough RAM) in an instant.

The Link? Crashsafari.com! But don’t be fooled into thinking it will only crash the Safari browser, this also affects any type of browser and OS (Android, Windows, iOS) and ultimately your smartphone.

The funny thing is, the link has been shortened and people are clicking on it innocently, Guardian reports that one of the links shared has garnered about 100,000 clicks.
Although this bug isn’t malicious (it uses HTML5’s history.pushState) and won’t break anything on your phone, it is still annoying especially when you are doing something important with your phone
