It’s been quite a while since I’ve written here – probably too long. The past couple of weeks we’ve spent a lot of time improving the performance of Action Method Online. We are proud to say the changes are up and running smoothly. We’ve done things from the simply obvious (loading screen between tabs) to the outrageously maticulous (optimizing CSS). Due to these changes everything runs faster including loading time, drag-and-dropping, resizing, switching tabs, and searching. You may have also noticed we got rid of that “2.5 Seconds Remain” countdown after the site finished loading. That always was irritating to us and the optimizations let us finally remove it.
The biggest jump in speed was actually with Internet Explorer 7. We still recommend using more recently updated browsers (such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari), but if you were ever in IE7 before you will be quite pleasantly surprised now. I know that some people can’t download browsers or Adobe AIR in their office.
Anywho, we hope you enjoy the upgrade. Keep the feedback coming and we’ll keep improving for you.
