    See now I don't have a problem with stock browser. I loaded Ocean browser a few weeks ago and liked it so I proceeded to set up all my favorites. Ran fine for a few days and then started crashing. I uninstalled and reinstalled Ocean and it still crashes. Stock browser has been fine. I am running EOS stable 3. Very strange.

    It affects any unpatched/vulnerable javascript enabled browser running on android. Access settings for your browser, and do same, uninstall/reinstall and disable javascript

    For me all i had to do was uncheck javascript and restart the browser and no crashes but of course then some stuff wont work. Hope a fix comes soon. Very annoying. Havent tried it long enough but it seems like it doesnt crash if i stay off of this site?
    Edit: well it sort of worked. Seems like it crashes more on this site than on others but it still eventually crashes.

    So what did you do? Just disable javascript?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for this thread!!!!! I thought I was going nuts and all alone. I too have the same symptoms. Without knowing what else to do, I started trying different browsers. Tried Firefox and Dolphin, saw no changes. Then I tried Opera, so far that seems to be stable. Am now in the process of doing suggested virus and malware checks. Am running stock with ICS

    Something weird going on. After reading a few threads about it being a java issue it seemed to me that it was related to this site somehow? If i had a tab open on this site it would crash randomly. I tried unchecking javascript and it stopped. I checked javascript and it crashed again. But since yesterday it has stopped crashing. Wonder if something got changed? Hope it keeps working!

    I've reinstalled Ocean browser and just turned off java. Seems more stable now. I've scanned for viruses with both Norton and avast and they didn't find anything. Should I be doing some other type of scan?

    While on browsers, does anyone know why the stock browser will suddenly become non responsive? Looks like it starts to load a page and then just sits there. Close and reopen and the same thing. Does it to every site. Switch to Ocean browser and it loads fine so it isn't WiFi.
