Lengthy operations (>500ms) have to go into background but feedback is still
needed. That's typically done with a progress bar in the statusbar (or the
address bar in case of Internet browsers) where the cancel button would fit
well. While UX can easily demand such a feature it is likely a challenge for
the developers.

Escape is not a good idea as it could be pressed accidentally.
