XMLHttpRequest Leak in IE 7
|Reported by:||Daazku||Owned by:|
The default behavior of jQuery is to create an XMLHttpRequest if the browser support it. But in IE 7 (don't know for other versions) XMLHttpRequest don't release resources until you refresh the page or navigate away.
We should handle that and supply ActiveXObject by default for IE.
