The following code will crash your CPU if you use IE7 or older.

$(window).bind('resize', function() {

$("html, body, .wrapper").animate({height : $(window).height() + "px"}, 0);


See the demo.

Resize your screen and it wil crash. Sometimes you don't even have to resize to let it crash.

IE automatically fires a resize event on elements that have their dimensions changed. You are creating a loop because your animation is causing IE to fire a resize event.
