Opera must crash if something went wrong!

  • Most important, most means most, feature that a browser must have is that it should crash when something went wrong.

    This is the reason why I stop using firefox. And now, seems like Opera has the same problem. Even worse, I can say.

    So, my advice is to set Opera to crash when is unavailable (it can't be used, it's not responding).

    After appending some html code with javascript, an wrong function appendet the same code over and over (loop forefer). Making this, the browser stopped working and my processor was up to 80-90% used by Opera. My computer was freezed for a while... until I closed the browser using task manager.

    I hope you won't say that this is my problem cause I'm developer and i'm a bad programmer...

    PS: Windows 7, 64 - Opera 49

  • I think that a software should never crash but if you think it should you can suggest it in the proper section of the forum.

  • @andrei89 The only other browser that closes when there is a problem or crash is slimjet.. * i've been told, but not possitive tho..

    Hmm. And yet nearly all the browser designers in the world have been expending multiple man-years of effort just to crash-proof browser architecture over the last several years, to prevent a problem in one process from crashing the entire browser! Silly of them, eh? How, exactly, is a browser supposed to know that your reiterating code was an unintentional flaw, rather than an intentional design loop or 'feature'?

    update to Opera 50 !

    Protect your session against crashes
    Upon a crash loop detection, Opera 50 will not remove your current browsing session. Instead, all pages will be marked for manual reload after re-activation, except for the current tab which will detail the encountered problem. This will fix the annoying issue of losing all opened tabs due to an unrelated problem such as with syncing, for instance.

    l lurve this new 1 that came out..Opera Developer 52.0.2838.0 it is wicked ! esp with the new tab function.. Yes Yes ! !..
