Well - trying this on IE gave me a chuckle. A search on 'erlang' in the find
box caused a pause, and then a popup saying "Something on this page is
making IE run slowly. Would you like to continue? (note this may make your
computer unstable)".

Of course I clicked "NO", not wishing that to happen, at which time the fan
came on on my laptop and ie went into total non respond mode.
