A quicker way to quit the browser, is to do "Alt+Ctrl+Delete" or right click on the taskbar and hit "task manager", then go to the "processes" tab. If running firefox, kill "firefox.exe"; If running IE, kill "iexplore.exe", and others should be basically self-explanatory. The only one that _really_ confused me was IExplore.exe at first.

Just use google chrome. If the site tries to do the lyrics popup thing, google chrome will give you the option to escape the site. And when I tried to go to 1227.com, google chrome gave me a malware warning page! And also, google chrome uses a new process for each tab so you can kill only one tab through Task Manager.

If running Firefox with multiple tabs, Ctrl+Alt+Del it (on windows). Then, open it up again, and it should give you the option to continue your last session, opening it up exactly like it was. While the Rickroll site is loading, close that tab.

You forgot number 6 of how to escape rickrolls: If the site moves the window around, from the bottom of your screen, click Maximize then quickly click the tab`s X button.
