Hang Computer with a URL

This is an amazing trick.This will hang your computer. All one needs to do is to visit the link below
Note open the link at your own risk

What actually happens is this page floods requests to open mailto windows causing system to hang.
This hack points out inability of modern browsers to block automated "mailto" windows.It should be noted that the modern browsers are however able to block popup windows and alerts.
