    i have been using javascript (jQuery and prototype javascript) for developing
    a webpage which works extremely well on Firefox and Google Chrome.
    Any javascript operation is done instantaneously on Firefox and Google
    Chrome, but the same operation take few seconds to be executed on IE.
    Even the event handlers are very smooth on other browsers and they seem to
    be buggy on IE.
