For an internal application I have an ajax search functionality built that queries a database and returns customers names on key entry. So I type in “Acm” I get a listing of:
I also found out IE 7 is slow on some Google sites where a ton of XML traffic is being returned, like their Google Maps.
I started playing around with IE 7′s options, turning off Phishing filter, testing, no luck and so on. When I turned off the native XMLHttp support as seen below, my application ran perfectly fast on IE7. IE 7 is set up to fall back to the Microsoft.XMLHTTP Active X object if this gets turned off.
So this makes me wonder.
- If so, did they follow the spec?
- If so, is their object code buggy or just plain slow
- If so, why would you ship with this option turned on by default?
This has egg on the face written all over it.
Did you know you could browse IE with handheld computers? Modern technology makes everything more portable, like barcode readers and mobile computers. Zebra card printers are now portable, too, so you can print on the go!
