Hm I see. I am curious about if it works in IE6 IE6 doesn't even need such a gif to crash while loading a page
IE6 crashed much less than the 2005-07 versions of Firefox, though
(version 1.05 until the end of 2.x). I had to CTRL+Alt+Del every 5 minute or so when using Firefox.
There was also the bug that caused Firefox to use 6 times more resources than Crysis at maxed out settings when a link was broken from time to time. Firefox would just freeze and make the entire computer lag like crazy for about 30 seconds before the Page cannot be found/loaded screen appeared.
Anyway I clicked the first post link in Opera and the tab just said out of memory after freezing for a second. To be honest, I don't like data images because they're hard to share (since the URL is so long and often won't fit in the address bar)
