Is window.stop supported in IE?
Is there an equivalent to Netscape's window.stop in IE?

IE4+ doesn't support the 
  window.stop
method. Instead, the
  document.execCommand
method has an (previously) undocumented argument called Stop, which 
allows you to call
  document.execCommand('Stop')
to get the same effect as
  window.stop()
in Netscape.
It should be noted that using this repeatedly in IE 5.x (especially 
within frames) can cause a browser crash.
