Chrome is a free third party web browser available for the iPad in the App Store. Yes, it's a Google app. I have four third party browses on my iPad, for those occasions when Safari doesn't work, they sometimes do. But I mostly use Safari, because it usually does a good job and because it is the system default it usually works better with other apps and services. I haven't had the problems mentioned here, but I also don't use the iPad as my primary web browser and email client; so I' also spending considerably less time in them. If you typically have a lot of tabs open in Safari, try keeping it down to three or four. If it's memory error crashes causing the problem that may help. And iOS 7.1.1 is supposed to have fixed a few other bugs. If you haven't upgraded yet give it a try.
