Here is alittle something that i would like to share with you. I'm currently working on a ajax-webpage that will have to show quite alot of table elements and i was benchmarking the most common browsers.
Ok this might look shocking but let me explain, in Opera, Firefox and Chrome i can run code asyncronous. If i do this in IE the loadtime is insanly fast but the browser just ignores to load some of the information (The divs are left blank and the browser stops to load).Total element 24372
Elements per second
Opera = 13903 (1.753 sec)
Firefox = 10146.5 (2.402 sec)
Chrome = 3730 (6.534 sec)
IE7 = 483.8 (50.372 sec)
Maybe someone should make a browser and donate it to Microsoft, it seems they could need some help, hehe
