Window.Close not working?
MikeJMS8910 (231)

So I have a code that opens up a tab and then once the tab has loaded it will close the tab. Here is the code -

let x = true;

while(x == true) {
let y ="")
y.onload = y.close()

What it does do is just open the tab up very fast but never close it. So why is it not working and how can I fix this?

first off,
never ever use while true loops that don't terminate, because it will crash your browser and be slow!!

Second, the code works?

@Coder100 if I put it in the inspector it doesn't work for me
