bug 476 - Slow SVG rendering in IE8

Issue: #476
Affects: IE8

For anyone that has noticed that SVG rendering in IE8 (w/Adobe 3.x plugin) is really slow (like 10 seconds to load a simple image... kind of slow) you'll be glad to hear that there is a solution!

The issue is that IE attempts to load a resource file (script or style) that it can't locate.


<script xlink:href="/js/nonExistingFile.js"/>

To remove the delay that is caused by IE/Adobe Plugin (not sure which is stalling) attempting to find and load your JS / CSS file simply correct your SVG markup to point to only valid resource files.

Known Workarounds: One. Check that you are not pointing to any non-existing resources if you are noticing heavy delays in rendering.

Related Issues: None.
