Why, when you click on the wrong link, do you always get to the stop button a split second too late :|

I believe the new version of Internet Explorer addresses this by automatically running very slowly.

Try esc..

awesome, i never knew that!.


I hate it when i mistype the url like: www.anandtech.co or www.anandtech.co,
Yeah.. that's exactly what I use it for.

Back in the dialup days, you didn't even really have to try to stop a page from loading. It's a little harder with broadband, but you can still manage to do it most of the time.

Whenever I open a new window, I always hit ctrl-n, esc in rapid succession.. just a habbit.

Or just slide your mouse an inch or two to the left and click the Back button instead....

same here. its much quicker to shoot your hand over to esc than it is to aim your mouse for an effing button on the toolbar =)
