@ Philippe, Deborah, and Jonathan.. Your exchanges have been interesting..

This topic came up a while back, six months ago or better.. At that
time and on whatever thread it was, I wrote about Youtube repeatedly
and always locking up not just my various browsers but my entire
computer, as well, to the point of nothing less than a reboot being
the fix.. Your exchange here *sounds like* a possibility towards what
was occurring.. The word "trapped" is certainly most appropriate..

With one exception I neglected to note for posterity, have consciously
noticed in the last month or so that I'm safely able to walk in and
out of pages containing any type of realtime Youtube interaction..
Assumed *something* had been addressed.. Had hoped it was on Youtube's
end as that translates into more rapid universal accessibility change
across the entire Net since they're the one providing the feed..
