How to destroy a nice application? Have it run on IE
Damn IE. I have been working for months on an application that uses a lot of Dojo. It is a fairly complex application with the user interface sitting all on one page with 5 dialog box, data grids, lots of xhrPosts and xhrGets, and many other visual affects. Of course everything works on Chrome and Firefox, but it crashes on IE during testing yesterday. Now I have to spend an enormous amount of time debugging why it crashes in IE. I suspect it is the datagrid which is very sensitive.
