Funny, I just tried that website, crashed it once, IE8 restored all of my tabs, crashed again, I get a page with a red X, "Internet Explorer has stoped trying to restore this tab, there is a consistent problem with this page". I'll take that as a solid feature.

No, the actual wording is :

"It appears that the website continues to have a problem."

I just love the fact that when a website is able to fully crash the browser, Microsoft have the balls to suggest that it's the site at fault.

Unbelievable.

Good feature though!

Its a null pointer bug in the IE 8 rendering engine.
