For 10.12.3 and before I've used AppleIntelFramebufferAzul. Worked fine for me, after apply it - never ever got any freeze from Safari.
But today I've decided to update to 10.12.4 and then right to 10.12.5. And it's freeze now on some sites :( WebGL disabled in Safari. Plugins disabled.

Ia anyone has the same problem? It's also freeze 100% every time on only these specific sites(I just give these links examples I've found so far, just by browsing web..):
link 1 or link 2

In Chrome all works without freezes.. but I need Safari, I like it.

I found a fix for Safari freezing when playing certain (flash?) videos.

The thread where I found the solution is here:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-safari-completely-freezes-on-10-12-5.223520/

I installed the following two kexts here: /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12/

Kext 1. IntelGraphicsFixup - An open source kernel extension providing patches for Intel GPUs
https://sourceforge.net/projects/intelgraphicsfixup/

Kext 2. vit9696/Lilu v1.1.3
https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/releases

And that worked! Hurray!

P.S. I did not install the optional kext for broken trailers in iTunes (I don't watch trailers on iTunes) but will list it for reference:
vit9696/Shiki v2.0.2
https://github.com/vit9696/Shiki/releases

Hope that helps!

I can confirm that installation of IntelGraphicsFixup 1.1.5 and Lilu 1.1.5 fixed Safari video freezes on 10.12.4 with both discrete (GTX750 Ti) and integrated (HD530) graphics cards enabled and used to drive two screens.

Hey guys on 10.12.6 it seems Chrome and Safari will freeze the system if I have them open with lets say After Effects and rendering while watching a web video.

Any help appreciated :(

I'm pulling my hair out!! I tried everything.
