Native XMLHttp in IE

If IE is used, create a wrapper for the XMLHttpRequest object if ( !XMLHttpRequest && ActiveXObject )

XMLHttpRequest = function(){

return new ActiveXObject(

navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE 5") >= 0 ? "Microsoft.XMLHTTP" : "Msxml2.XMLHTTP"



I assume that you didn't try that code, because it freaks out in IE (if memory serves me correctly - maybe it was Opera). I'll probably change it to this:

if ( jQuery.browser.msie && XMLHttpRequest == undefined )
