A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

IE7 Tabbed Browsing Annoyance Part 2

This is just a quick post. It concerns how IE7 (Internet Explorer 7 Beta 1) deals with XmlHttpRequest Object (commonly used for AJAX based applications) and multiple windows. If I construct a request in IE7 that is not asynchronous it naturally will stop the browser from responding until it is completed. In IE7, if you have multiple tabs open and perform a long XmlHttpRequest that is synchronous in nature, it stops all the other tabs from responding. I would expect that what it should do is to lock the current tab and nothing else? Is my thinking correct

Has anyone else experienced this? If so email me: paul.kinlan@gmail.com and I can write a bit more about it.
