Browser Miner

Code on a website that mines cryptocurrency using the visitor's computation resources.

For example, you go to a sketchy streaming site that lets you watch TV shows or movies for free, though it uses your CPU to mine Monero for the duration of your stay on the website.

EXAMPLE USAGE:

I was streaming some Spongebob on this website but I bluescreened because the browser miner maxed out my CPU.
