Ajax functions problems with caching in IE

Here is an idea for a feature I think should be included in jQuery. When I do an AJAX request in IE, I am having problems with IE caching that request. I fixed this by passing a no-Cache variable, and passing a new date with each request. It would be great if jQuery had this as an optional feature with their ajax requests, so you could specify if you wanted jQuery to send a noCache variable with a request. This would be alot easier for the end developer who could enable/disable this as an argument either way based on whichever was set as the default.

Please consider, and contact me with any thoughts and or questions.

The $.ajax function has a cache option: http://docs.jquery.com/Ajax/jQuery.ajax#options

When building your ajax call, just add cache: false to the options.

Is that what you are looking for?

Just use cache : false in the options.

The cash option from jQuery does NOT work with I.E.

"cache: false" seems to cause issues when using windows gadgets and IE8 is installed. It's as if the request fails to complete.
