View Full Version : window.open, caching and performance

06-03-2004, 10:04 PM
I'm using IE (5.5 and 6 behave the same manner).

When I open a popup using window.open(), then browser retrieves
ALL images from the popup html page, even those that should be in cache.

If I keep the popup open, and recall window.open from the opener with another page using the same images, then images are taken from cache.

It looks like IE starts a new thread with empty cache when we call
window.open !!!

Any suggestions to make IE use the cache of the opener window and prevent IE to reload everything ??

Thanks in advance
