Hi loading large websites causes the browser to crash.
To reproduce please follow these steps
Use iOS 9.2 with an iPhone or iPad.
* go to https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/269651/ click on the layout.yaml file. When it's loading the browser will crash.
* since Google chrome is a fork of WebKit I tested Google chrome on Windows and manages to load the website without crashes and loads pretty fast. I presume the fix is somewhere in Google chrome. We should backported it here since reviewing changes is important even big files with little changes.
I've filed this bug here https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T126442 for that file. But we Should fix the bug that causes loading large files through web browser to crash
What does "click on the layout.yaml file" mean? https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/269651/1/zuul/layout.yaml is a small document (a diff).

It means to click on the file that I have linked meaning when you click on the link, click on the file to view the diff. The file will not load in WebKit it just crashed whereas it loads in chrome.
Can you paste the actual url for the page that crashes on iOS but loads in Chrome?

Ok heres the link https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/270938/4/zuul/layout.yaml It works in chrome but crashes on ios probably it happends to webkit.
Ah, that's the one I tried. It does indeed run out of memory on older devices.

Ok but it also happends on newer devices such as an ipad pro and a iPhone 6. Ipad pro is 128gb and iPhone 6 plus a 64gb.
Google chrome works on windows. I doint think it works on ios since it uses the same engine and safari.

Apple does not comment on the timing or content of future releases.
