IE 8 just locked up on me. This in and of itself is a Bad Thing. I’ve got into the habit of having lots of tabs open in IE  - I checked it’s currently 70 (why … ? because I can, it’s a pile off stuff I’m thinking about, going back to or what ever). IE 8 will recover from being killed off in task manager. But 70 pages to re-open ? I’d rather not. Then this box popped up

Ooh. Now that’s rather clever. I’ve popped the offending site into compatibility mode and it’s behaving. Chalk another one up for IE


Update. This is the second post in quick succession where it's been pointed out that his wasn't actually new.  I'd never seen it before so perhaps it is better in 8. Thanks to andy for the comment and the reference. I'm off to make a dunce's hat and sit the corner.

  • I don't think this is IE8 specific

    It's been in IE for age

    IE 8 does a better job of it though with each tab being isolated

    You can even customise the time out before it pops up the message
