Well, I am sure by now you must be very well familiar with the independent tabs feature of Google Chrome. As per this feature if some tab in your Google Chrome window hangs or crashes then it won’t result in the complete Google Chrome Window crashing. This feature was hyped a lot before and after the launch of Google Chrome.
Everyone said that this revolutionary feature of Google Chrome was unique when compared to the other competitive brothers and sisters. No, its not!
Google chrome is said to be fighting (and curbing down) Internet Explorer 8 but somehow they have copied the independent tabs feature from IE 8 itself. The process model of IE8 is given below.
For automatic crash recovery IE8 implements the tab isolation feature and Microsoft website describes the tab isolation feature as:
If a website or add-on causes a tab to crash in Internet Explorer 8, only that tab is affected. The browser itself remains stable and other tabs remain unaffected, thereby minimizing any disruption to your browsing experience.
And you thought you were experiencing something revolutionary?
