I don’t know what did hulu do to their software but it crashed my browser only just now. I tried everything like switching to IE (I am using firefox) and that crashed the whole browser. I even updated flash and it did not help. No info on the net either… almost as if I am the only one experiencing the problem.
Just a little more information: I monitored the resource usage and checked the error console in firefox. It seems the crash happens right when the flash player for hulu connects with fplive.hulu.com (or something like that) and then the memory usage for the plugin container for firefox shoots up past 500mb! It looks like the most recent version of firefox stopped the plugin before it gets out of hand.
