Flag to disable pushState throttle (and console message)
Project Member Reported by, Sep 28 Back to list

r485498 introduced a pushState/replaceState throttle to avoid some subset of denial of service attacks on the browser process.

We've heard from Netflix that this caused a problem for an automated test suite, and there weren't any visible clues for why it wasn't working.

It would help to add something like a --disable-pushstate-throttle command line flag to allow test suites to work, along with a console message when the throttle kicks in (mentioning the flag).

palmer@, would you be able to add this to follow up on r485498?  (Sorry-- no good deed...)  :)
FWIW, I'd be interested in submitting a patch for this if palmer won't be able to get to it soon.
Certainly-- patches welcome!  (I would imagine that palmer@ doesn't have a lot of free time, and would probably appreciate it.)
#1: Certainly, and thanks. :) I'd be happy to review your code, help you out with getting the patch together, or helping in whatever way.
