When I test the code below, i have a memory leak with IE8 (350 KB / 10 min). The file heure.php is a simple 'echo date("d/m/Y - H:i:s");'

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-W3CDTD XHTML 1.0 TransitionalEN" " http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns=" http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="fr" >


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.4.2.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

function Heure(){


'heure.php', {action: "test"}, function(data) {

document.getElementById("test").innerHTML = data;

}, "text"


} setInterval(Heure, 1000);




<div id="test" ></div>

It is possible to reduce the leak :

  • not using anonymous function in the $.post(). (thanks to the irc channel of prototype ;-) )

But there is still a memory leak.
