Steps to reproduce
Sometimes loading a big file through Microsoft edge or internet explorer causes the browser to crash or freeze and load the web page slowely.
For an example please see https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/272954/2/zuul/layout.yaml
Also this problem happened in webkit which I hope has been fixed with https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154068
In google chrome the web page is loaded almost instantly without freeze.
It happends on GitHub here to, viewing large diffs causes slowness or crashes.
Works in chrome.
Also reported here but closed https://github.com/Microsoft/ChakraCore/issues/383
