Please be polite, and respectful towards other members of this forum. This is a thing we really insist upon, on our forum. Having the word "children" was not necessary here. If you do not agree with someone, things can be said in a nicer way, without heated debates, arguments, calling names etc etc. Otherwise, we will have to take action.

We all know the problems with IE, and therefore the user suggested other alternatives, there is nothing wrong with that. He even said sorry for not being able to help with the original query.

I think you contradicted yourself with above two statements.

If Firefox was a junk browser, it would not be so popular. Its the second most popular browser after IE, and still growing. Again, not proper selection of words my dear friend... there are nicer way to say things.

Check this out: www[DOT]crashie.com/

Word of warning, IE users should NOT go to that link without prior 'preparations'. Other browser users can safely go to that link. I haven't tried what would happen if you visited that site using IE yet so beware and be prepare IE users.

P.S - crashie.com = crash ie

Two instances of iexplorer running, one takes up 55.9 MB and the other 22.3 MB of memory, IE not responding, Windows runs very slow...



What do you want to do next?

I can only press Ctrl-Shift-Esc, select the non-responding IE's, click End Task.

IE8 on W7 doesn't crash. Because W7 rocks.

True. So the CrashIE[dot]com has failed to bring down IE on W7, who knows would there be another site CrashIEonW7[dot]com to bring it to stall, or never will that exist?


Update: A further check on the source of the page crashie[dot]com shows that it contains two java scripts from : http://www[dot]google-analytics.com/urchin.js and http://include[dot]reinvigorate.net/re_.js , if you enter either one of them (replace [dot] with . ), it will still cause your IE8 on W7 to stop working .) Try at your own risks.

Interesting, Ctrl-Shift-Esc opens task manager too, didn't know that, I always open it with Ctrl-Alt-Del.

In the newer version of Windows (Vista+7), the only way to open the task manager is ctrl-shift-esc.

I suggest you first disable all the add-ons. If that doesn't solve, you can go to microsoft website and download IE8 installed it. That may solve the problem
