Hi all,
I have a main parent page with several "widget" iframes. ClientSide JavaScript sets SRC attribute of these iframes so they can load at the same time. The problem is: if one of the iframes (they're all loaded from the same IIS server and really are ASPX pages) is taking a lot to load - it blocks the rest from loading. Is there a way to make multiple HTTP requests to the server at the same time?

It's IE that limits the number of connections to your server:[^]

Best regards

Wow, never this this about IE, maybe because I rarely use it. My 5.

Thanks, Sergey - that browsers should limit the number of connections is part of RFC2616

IE surely picks and chooses when to follow standards. I even tried registry hack to increase number of connections, but it seems to work only on the first load. After that I guess all connections are used up.
What about delayed load? Let IE keep it limit, but make slowest iframe load last? What would be the best way to do it? Thanks for the IE info, btw +5
