Critical Bug in Gmail integrated Chat

Well chat is a part of our day to day life (I use Gtalk). While chatting with my friends today who were using gmail integrated chat, I noticed that they were going offline every 2-3 minutes. Finally thanks to Sowmya Sudha, who came up with this critical bug in Gmail integrated chat. Here is what exactly happens when you chat using Gmail integrated chat:

Step 1: You open up a chat window to start chatting

Step 2: Pop out the chat box to get more space for writing and reading messages

Step 3: Now for some reason you decide to popin or close the poped out chat

And Bingo!

Your browser goes for a roll. Tested on Firefox and Flock. Surely will be same on Internet Explorer.

After failing to handle orkut apps efficiently, this is the second time I am seeing any critical bug from google. Are we going to see a downfall in google’s standards ??

Try out yourself.
