The Microsoft Edge crash started for the 7PM ET crash, and is affecting macOS and Windows users. It’s not clear why they are limited to Google search engines at Edge. If you switch to Microsoft’s Bing search engine within Edge, the crash won’t happen.
We’ve reached out to Microsoft for more information about the problems, and we’ll update it accordingly.
