My Apple Safari browser is crashing again and again while I am working.

Solution:

To solve this problem by deleting these three cached Google files:

com.apple.Safari.SafeBrowsing/Google/malware,osx,url_expression
com.apple.Safari.SafeBrowsing/Google/social_engineering,osx,url_expression
com.apple.Safari.SafeBrowsing/Google/unwanted_software,osx,url_expression

The files are located in a private folder with a cryptic name. To find it, start with the Finder command:

Go -> Go to Folder… /private/var/folders

The folders within the folders folder correspond to different user accounts. Your folder is the only one that lets you navigate into the C subfolder.

Within the C folder, navigate to. /com.apple.Safari.SafeBrowsing/Google:

Move the three files in the Google folder to the trash. After restarting Safari, the files will automatically regenerate in a few minutes. This stopped the crashing!
