Yeah perhaps chrashing IE is a bit to much.
I do remember visiting a website some time ago
that warned me when I was browsing with IE.
But I can't remember where at.
I could allway's print "optimized for Mozilla/Firefox" onscreen ;)
Offcourse I was joking about crashing IE for real world purposes,
just was interested if it could be done.
I support all modern browsers even bad ones.

If you are only interested in whether it can be done then yes, there is
versions of IE 5+, and at least a dozen that will crash IE 4. However,
Mozilla/Gecko versions to date, another that does the same for Opera 7,
that I have had a chance to examine in that detail. None of them are
lines of code that would have any place in any reasonable browser
It wouldn't be a good idea to start deliberately crashing other people's
browsers because you can never tell where that sort of tactics will end
I'm suprised no one seemed to mention this one (all various links
describing the same thing):
