I use Keyboard Shortcuts extensively. With IOS8 release, Safari freezes on entering many shortcuts - e.g. On creating an ID for this very forum, I entered my three character shortcut for my email address and - voila - Safari froze solid. Had to close, reopen and enter my email address sans shortcut.

I just tested the keyboard shortcuts and one I did use and just setup again doesn't work. I would assume it's iOS8. Not the app or shortcut you use and use it in. I'm unsure why it would cause Safari to freeze for you though.

It's a Safari bug. I've had Safari freeze and become completely unresponsive until it crashed several seconds later about ten times on my iPhone 6. I think it did it once on 8.0.2, but most of them occurred on 8.0.

I just downloaded 8.02.
Bug not fixed; Safari still freezes (btw, it never did in IOS7)

I've had the freezing of Safari as well. Also the Messages app a few times. Maybe 3 times while texting the same person.
