Mozilla Branches for 0.9.8
Wednesday January 23rd, 2002
mozilla.org today branched for Mozilla Milestone 0.9.8, as well as opened the tree for 0.9.9 checkins. Look for branch builds to start sometime later this week, as early as tomorrow. (While a certain site believes that without builds, you can't have a branch, that is not true.) Pre-0.9.9 trunk builds will start tomorrow, or possibly tonight. See our earlier story for what's new in 0.9.8.

Well. Try to simulate this behaviour with static html page. It does not work (or didn't work when I tried it), since there is some kind of check. It should not be possible to pass that check by supplying some dumb parameters. Also it would make sense to prevent mozilla from loading more than 50 frames from the same site. (the actual limit could be configurable in user.prefs)
However it is good to hear your browser stayed responsive, because mine just died before I could hit the stop button. It should allways be possible to stop whatever is going on. The point in all this is that when I surf in the net, I don't know what html will possibly come from the server. I don't want that some evil server-administrator can crash my browser without me having a say on that.
