So I'm able to reproducibly crash Safari 12.1.2 by entering 'et5' (no quotes) into the URL bar. I discovered this when mistyping Etsy's URL. This is on Mojave 10.14.6.

I'd be interested to know if anyone else has experienced this.

Safari 14.0.3 and Big Sur 11.2.3 do not reproduce this.

Thank you tBC. So, this apparent superpower that I have may not be as useful as I initially hoped.

update: Investigating on my 10.15.6 / 13.1.2 system at home reveals that 'et5' brings up a live tracker of an Ethiopian Airlines flight in the AutoComplete menu. I wonder if that's whats borking my older system.

No problem here either. Just a boring Google search. Newest macOS and Safari.

Might be trying to smart-think what you want, and going to something thats pure crap.
