I can repro this. I think this constantly occurs in previous versions as well.

> The page can't finish loading the image if you interrupt it.

And that is very insulting to me!
Interruption can happen with/without user consent. For example, losing internet connectivity while using wireless internet connection.
The problems lies in IE capability, in the sense that it's NOT FOOL-PROOF ENOUGH to handle such interruption. Or in other words, IE is NOT smart enough to handle such things.
Things like that can happen anywhere and anytime. And IE should be fool-proof to handle such case.

Still happens in IE10RP on Windows 7.

By design? It's a regression from previous versions. Heck, even other browsers do it like IE8 did. The images are displayed line by line as they're downloaded and if you stop the image from loading, it shows the image without corruption.

Thank you for your feedback.

The issue you are reporting is by design. The page can't finish loading the image if you interrupt it.

Best regards,

The Internet Explorer Team

It's even worse in the RC now. PNGs don't show at all if you cancel the download before it's finished.

Probably wouldn't happen if feedback ID 602384 was fixed.
