|Subject:||Re: Slow image download in PTViewer/IE|
I did check if the script* as an effect on loading speed with IE, my
conclusion is it has no effect what ever the size i put in the script or
the file size, on a macintosh.
Off line, on a G4,
Applet with hotspots and scripts, or applet with a clean page and no
? 1600*800 file
Netscape 4.72 6 sec
Internet Explorer 5 14 sec
? 3800*1900 file
Netscape 4.72 20 sec
Internet Explorer 5 48 sec
It is always the double in IE5 ?
But the most ennoying problem, as i said before, i that Netscape memory
will grow each time you reload the applet !
With the big file it grows of 50 megs for each loading?
And the good news is the big file pans quit fast in Netscape ?
* Helmut's script used
if (navigator.appName != 'Netscape')
I tried 5 000 000 and 50 000 000 ?
