View Full Version : What's up with the about:blank page ?

7 Feb 2011, 5:28 PM
I've noticed that whenever I run an app, or demo source, a mysterious 'about:blank' is always loaded along with the app. According to Chrome Developer Tools, this page's status is always 'Pending'. It doesn't seem to cause any problems, but I'm still curious:

Why does this page get loaded with every app?

Have you tried in Safari as well? I've noticed that some plugins (in both browsers) can cause some random things to be loaded...

Yes, same result with Safari with extensions disabled.

I also noticed the same behavior. It's caused by the iframe which is created when the application has useHistory enabled.
