Window.stop()

 
The window.stop() stops further resource loading in the current browsing context, equivalent to the stop button in the browser.
 
Because of how scripts are executed, this method cannot interrupt its parent document's loading, but it will stop its images, new windows, and other still-loading objects.

Syntax

window.stop() 

Example

window.stop();
