Alas, it's fairly "normal" for systems to "freeze" when accessing certain web pages that demand a lot of CPU. Usually, however, if you wait long enough, the system will "come back".
Sometimes, however, a bug in the browser prevents this, and prevents the browser from being "killed". In that case, on Windows, hit Ctrl-Alt-Del, select "Start task manager", and find the problem app in the list of running tasks. You can then click on it and kill it.
If you have this a lot you should install MS "Process Explorer", as it makes the operation a hair smoother.
(There are equivalent operations on Linux and Apple, but I'll let others describe them.)
(PS: I've found Mozilla to be a bit more stable/reliable in this regard than the others.)
