Really weird problem... I have a page that returns a large amount of data. It is generated from a PHP mysql query that loops through about 6000 rows and returns 2 lines of data for each. No problems in firefox, chrome, safari. Doing a microtime() in those browsers I can tell it takes just over 2 seconds to complete the loop.
But accessing the same page from IE8 microtime() reports it takes 196 seconds to complete the loop. So the page usually times out in PHP. So my question is why is it only a problem in IE? The only way I can think of is somehow the outputing/buffering to IE is really slow? Any ideas on remedies, things to try?
