CrahsIE.com Is a ScamUses illegitimate methods to promote other web browsers.

Crash IE is a tricky little web site which is designed to crash Internet Explorer. Turns out, it’s a scam.

If you visit the mentioned page with the latest version of IE9, there is a big chance that your web browser will crash. Visit it with Google Chrome, Opera or Firefox and everything works like a charm.

So what’s the big deal? Here is a thing: change the user agent to IE and every other web browser will crash too! Now isn’t that nice?

    I just visited that site and saw it recommended using Opera. I opened it in Opera and Opera blocked it for being malicious.
