Tentative fix: https://codereview.chromium.org/868393002
I did experienced this bug around January with Chromium on Arch Linux, but now (v40.0.2214.115) everything is ok.
Edit: I've replaced "Known" with "It may be related to this", as I'm not 100% it's the same issue.
Does not crash on Version 43.0.2326.0 canary (64-bit) on Windows 7.
Both have uBlock installed.
It shows dollars in a private window.
This page crashes too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_3:16
Edit: Just updated Chrome. Crashes OS X 10.10.2, Chrome Version 41.0.2272.76 (64-bit)
It DOES NOT crash for me on Chrome Canary (43), on OS X 10.10.
It DOES crash for me on Chrome 41, same OS.
Chrome Version 41.0.2272.76 (64-bit)
OS X 10.9.5
