If you have configured SlimBrowser to use IE8 rendering mode, SlimBrowser might crash under Winxp when you view some improperly coded web pages (e.g., missing html tags). An example website is http://addons.eventscripts.com/addons/view/spawnpro
. If you view the same website in IE, IE will automatically switch into compatibility view to display the page. However, such switching attempt would result in access violation in the case of SlimBrowser or any other browsers based on Microsoft trident engine.
On Windows 7, the situation is a little better. It doesn't crash but the tab view will attempt to display the web page first and then become completely blank after that.
If you run into such websites, you are recommended to view it in IE7 mode. To change the rendering mode, go to tools:options:misc, toggle the option "Enable IE8 rendering mode.".
