Description

On the latest chrome calling

$($);

Freezes the browser.

I know that this is not common usage of the library, but the outcome it's a frozen browser and the only solution is to force close the tab.

See it for yourself:

Thanks for your time and interest in helping the jQuery project, but the consensus at the bug triage sprint today was that we shouldn't handle this edge case - there's no fathomable reason to do this in the first place.
