Want to crash Internet Explorer? Click the link in here!

This is really funny. Internet Explorer can always be crashed. In fact, there's a site that actually has some particular code in it that manages to crash IE as soon as you browse to it. It even works with IE9 beta.

Click here to crash IE!

Want to put this into a website? Put in this bit of HTML into it:
<style type="text/css">
#a {
        margin:0 10px 10px;

#b {
<title>IE Crasher</title>
<div id="a">
<form id="b">
<input type="text" name="test"/>
</td><td width="1"></td></tr></table>
You may have to change a few bits if you're pasting it into a webpage, but you probably know all that if you have a website in the first place.

You can also create an HTML document with the code in it, so that when it is opened in IE, it will quickly crash. For that, paste this code as it is in Notepad and save the file with an extension of '.htm' or '.html'.

Where can you use this? You can trick your friends who use IE, and you can convince them to switch to a better browser in the process. Maybe you can think of other ideas.

By the way, use another browser like Firefox or Chrome to visit the site linked above to see what happens. I did, and it surely doesn't crash, trust me.

Keep on laughing on IE and see other posts in my archive somewhere on the right.
