Yup - sometimes you just have to can the tab before it takes down the
whole laptop. Nowadays, I keep a shell handy on alt-tab, with a
browser-killing script ready to roll. If the activity light goes
bananas, I alt-tab and hit ENTER (blindly, of course, as the UI is by

the script in time to prevent a hard shutdown. Meanwhile, I put the

It's the triumph of style over substance. Most of these sites have very
little to offer - especially the click-bait sites. One learns to avoid them.
