In builds from about a month ago, the "load" event would fire even if the user pressed the stop button to stop the document before it completed. Now, it only fires when the page is fully loaded. The DOM spec says that "The load event occurs when the DOM implementation finishes loading all content within a document", but it seems like it should still fire when the stop button is pressed. Either that, or the "abort" event should fire instead (it doesn't right now). Build: 2000071008

Summary: "load" event not fired if document stopped → fire onabort event if document stopped
I believe this is not a valid bug. According to the DOM 2&3 the abort events should fire only on HTMLObjectElements.
Actual, from D3E (https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dom3events/raw-file/tip/html/DOM3-Events.html#event-type-abort) abort event should be fired only for Element, but its look like missing some other possibility: https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=25210 The same situtation is for error event, D3E (https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dom3events/raw-file/tip/html/DOM3-Events.html#event-type-error) list only Element, but this event is fired for Window too. At now only IE support abort event.
