Yes, it does, but um...that kinda sucks. "I, the computer, demand that you, 
the user, stop what you are doing and restart your browser NOW, losing all 
your work in the process.  This is not optional.  I will barf if you try to 
continue with your work or save it in any way, such as submitting that blog 
post you just spent an hour writing."
