    it crashes due to the url having a null character in it.

    Code:
    http://anything/%%30%30
    crashes opera too apparently.

    no real use other than pranking, i just thought it was interesting.

    Damn, this is kinda risky. What if someone has some unsaved work open and you crash their shit?

    When I opened this thread my mouse just so happened to be near the link and chrome crashed as soon as the thread loaded.

    A fair point. I did think twice should I post it. But for me hovering over it just crashes the tab its in where as pasting the url crashes the whole browser.

    Don't worry, it only crashes the tab the link is on.

    Tricky, Firefox is not crashing but opera does and this specific page of BHW has a strange pop up asking leave page or stay

    at least there's one thing what IE does better, it doesn't crash because of this, FF neither

    it's funny though how nobody mentioned IE yet, it clearly shows their browser market share :)
