Crash Internet Explorer with a JPEG!

Apparently, you can crash Internet Explorer with a JPEG, if that JPEG is saved by Photoshop 7. Nifty, huh? Gotta love IE (or not).

Mozilla doesn’t have this problem, of course.

    … I like Phoenix more than Mozilla, light and fast 🙂

    You don’t back your statement up with any fact. For any given Mozilla problem, Internet Explorer usually has at least a few more. I can cite examples if you would like — but as you brought up your opinion of Mozilla having problems, I would like you to reply with verifiable statements backing up what you believe. Thanks.

    i always knew. use png alpha blending with IE instead. phun.

    if ($ENV{‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’} !~ /MSIE/) {
    $src = "images/top_relaxed.png";
    } else {
    $style .= "filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(".

    Uh.. what?

    I’ve been creating jpegs with photoshop 7 for almost a year, and never had a report of crashed IE browsers. Is this a Photoshop for doze thing or something? Never had this problem over here in MacLand.
