https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/test Not sure if this is only on my jolla C, but opening the link above results in browser hanging and then crashing when it runs out of memory (in lighthouse it goes from 10% mem usage to around 70 something at more or less constant 25% cpu, so most likely one core at 100)

Using Jolla1 here and the Lighthouse app and I am seeing similar figures to what you state.

The page doesn't load, but instead stops at about two thirds of the way, hangs and then crashes back to a grey minimised tile.

Notably, I am accessing the link you provide from the official JollaTogether app, which gives a choice on how to view the page, either by WebView or Sailfish Browser. If I view your link with WebView, the page fully loads and is totally readable, but the same cannot be said with Sailfish Browser, which lets face it, is a pile of steaming dung and does not appear to be getting any better as the years roll by :-/

@szopin - as correctly pointed out by Levone1, there is already a question open on this subject, even I failed to realise this. I'm closing your question as a duplicate, please add your info/details to the link shown above from Levone1

Thanks, was not aware there is a mega-thread for this, thought it was some obscure html/browser bug on that particular website (while this still might be true, thought it wasn't that common occurrence to warrant a megathread)
