Escape Fast

Unfortunately it happens. Sometimes Web pages just don’t like to load very fast, do they? They get hung up for whatever reason and it’s just like torture to sit there and wait for it to come up.

Well, if you happen to run into that problem and want a quick way out, try the Escape (Esc) key on your keyboard. It’s located in the very top left hand corner and it’ll get you out of sitting and waiting for a Web page to load up. Pressing the Esc key will automatically stop the browser’s action and you can try another site or try the same page over again.

You can also use your mouse to click the Stop button on your browser, but the Esc key is just a little quicker! This works in Internet Explorer and Firefox.
