"Crasher" - My new Opera extension

About 15 minutes ago I had this idea of extension that would crash Opera - not after installation but after clicking on a button - and 10 minutes later I had first prototype. So if you need sometimes to crash Opera, this extension is just for you! You can download it here:

BTW, I didn't uploaded it to official extensions site from Opera, because I think that employees of Opera wouldn't be very happy about it.

Opera team is the best ever! They fixed it, in the previous built it was partially fixed and in this one is completely fixed.

Take a look here http://blog.solmetra.com/2006/12/13/javascript-crashing-opera/

Opera freezes and in the end crashes, but without letting you send an error log. Tested with Windows 7 x64.

Hope this helps you find another bug that crashes Opera :D

EDIT (second test): This time Opera crashed after 1-2 seconds with crash report :)

I know this one, but It requires opening of popup .. perhaps it will work with iframe too :) I will try it.

Why would you want to crash Opera? Not thinking of an occasion when I would need to do that. Besides, it crashes enough by itself.

:lol: ... Sometimes you might need to quickly kill the opera process :) Or test some opera feature how it works after Opera crashed or at least I can easily check if Opera finally fixed the bug I use in the extension. :bug:

What did you use to cause it to crash? (too lazy to look at the source and dig it out of the AppData folders)

When i started developing Buscomplete I wanted to use selectNodes method to select input text boxes with XPath. Unfortunately, Opera crashed after I used following script:

document.selectNodes("//input[@type='text' | not(@type)]");

And this is what I use in the "Crasher" extension.
