when you file a bug about OOM... you will probably want to think about how much memory does this site take up on the desktop.  This example takes up ~200mb rss on my MBA.  So, given that most phones don't have this much memory available, you are going to fail.

Now, I could mark WONTFIX, because well.. there will probably be always be pages that cause OOMs.

But, I figure we could do better about not OOMing... right?,  well, that is something much bigger than just this helloracer.com example...  and for some kind of generic OOM handling for all conditions is an enhancment.  And we probably have something on file already (dupme?) for that work.

In any case, this isn't something we should spend any time on and hence, i am dropping the priority and making this an enhancement.
