Prime Number List

This script generates a list of prime numbers on a new web page. You need to choose how many prime numbers to generate.

To give you some idea of the time it will take, 100 primes takes a couple seconds, 1000 primes takes about a minute, and 10,000 primes takes a couple of hours (as tested on a 200-MHz pentium). Note that the relationship is NOT linear!

Caution: Some browsers (including Internet Explorer) are not very tidy with system resources, and running this script for a while can cause your resources to get dangerously low. You should not run this script while you have other important applications open.
