jQuery performce issue in support function

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: timmywil
Priority: high Milestone: 1.next
Component: support Version: 1.6.4
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


We are using jQuery 1.6.4 in few project at eBay and found that following line of code in jQuery.support takes around 100 ms in Firefox and IE:

support.boxModel = div.offsetWidth === 2;

if ( "zoom" in div.style ) { ...... }

Any suggestions how can this be improved or can it be fixed.

It is HTML5 page with <!DOCTYPE html>

Thanks Neeraj

Interesting. How are you measuring the time it takes?

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by Neeraj Khanna <[email protected]…>

We are using "dynatrace" to check the execution time for each function and this turned out to be one of the biggest issue on our page, total execution is about 280 ms and 100 ms accounts for just this one line.

Run dyntrace against http://r1test.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=nike for Firefox

We'll look into this for 1.7.1, we were planning to do some work there anyway. Thanks!

What is timeline for 1.7? In the meanwhile can you suggest a patch to fix this?

For now, you could change the line to:

if ( typeof div.style.zoom !== "undefined ) {

but we'll be doing extensive performance testing of support.js in 1.7.1

I apologize if I was not clear in my ticket, problem is in this line:

support.boxModel = div.offsetWidth === 2;

not in zoom.

I found the following thread in stackoverflow discussing the same thing, but the reason mentioned doesn't apply to our case as we have doctype for HTML5 on the page.
