When I use the stock internet browser, I continuously get this THIS TAB HAS CRASHED error, which I refresh and it works fine. Its becoming annoying because it happens 10-20 times a day. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Phone Info:
I have a Galaxy S5 from Cricket (AT&T-USA MVNO).
Android 4.4.2
Baseband G900AZTUU1ANE7

The stock browser is a weird piece of software. It doesn't even have a name (just says "Internet"), no version number., doesn't say who made it (Google, Samsung or 3rd party?), doesn't have a privacy policy. But I use it because its fast and works the way a browser should. The phone is only 4 days old. Not rooted. I am pretty sure this is some sort of bug Google has placed in Android to push people to use Chrome browser instead just like Samsung is pushing people to use Samsung cloud services for Contacts, but without getting in the middle of their tug of war, I'd like to be able to use my phone properly.

Anyone else having this issue? Its frustrating because it is happening 20 times a day already. When I refresh it works fine. So why doesn't the dumb app just try to refresh without my intervention?

Did you ever find a solution to this issue is is doing my nut in. Sometimes it crashes and I have to reload the tab maybe 7 or 8 times before it works as if no issues. I have a feeling it might be flash related but can't find a fix.
