Tutorial :Stack overflow in Internet Explorer


Yesterday I came across an error which I was puzzled by and had a little laugh at.

I opened my website in Internet explorer (I use chrome 99% of the time) and got a "Stack Overflow" error.

I was just wondering is this a bad thing because when I open it in chrome or firefox it loads fine. Also does this happen to anyone else?

the website is, www.illstudylater.com


It's only bad if any of your users will be using Internet Explorer. So yes.


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stack_overflow

In software, a stack overflow occurs when too much memory is used on the call stack. The call stack contains a limited amount of memory, often determined at the start of the program. The size of the call stack depends on many factors, including the programming language, machine architecture, multi-threading, and amount of available memory. When too much memory is used on the call stack the stack is said to overflow, typically resulting in a program crash. This class of software bug is usually caused by one of two types of programming errors.

  • Infinite recursion
  • Very large stack variables

When this error is thrown, recursion is the more popular reason.

I've tried the site in IE8 without problems, so perhaps it is an old version of IE causing a problem.
