The way I see it the issue at hand is the OP still using iOS 6. The front page works in Safari on iOS 8.

http://www.neowin.ne...-inches-forward doesn't really help if the problem also exists in iOS 7.

I don't recall having any issues with the front page in Safari/iOS 7 on the iPad. Alas, Timan will know better what the problem can be.

Just upgraded to iOS 8 on my iPad Air. The crashes seem to be gone I tested a page with over 80 comments on the front page and it didn't crash. Previously, it would did on anything above 20 or so.

Regarding this comment :)

Bumping this since I came across at quite interesting blog which could be relevant to this bug:

 

CKEditor 4.4.5 with Safari 7.1 Fix Released - http://ckeditor.com/...-4.4.5-Released

 

I heard Neowin CMS or I think Comment system on front page also use CK Editor, if its not relevant then please ignore.

This is due to large # of comments on an article. We need to get a load more button for when there is more than X number of comments.

I just want to add that my iPad 4 running iOS 7 is also affected.

Do we know what that X number is and when the comment-loading mechanism will be implemented? Ideally, it would be great if the site detected whether the full version was being browsed on an iPad or desktop browser and display the button accordingly.

Ideally we want to not load comments immediately in an article until you scroll there, and then we can set a cut off to load more as you scroll further down.. but our main dev for these front end tweaks is away on business until tomorrow, so it won;t be looked at before then and the weekend.

 

I think not loading comments immediately will also improve seo in search results (read about this somewhere) and afaik we used to do this anyway.
