IE7 and IE8 both show a continuous loading bar after connecting.

There must be a way around this because the same does not happen on Socket.io

You might want to take a look at #215, redsquare posted a code snippet there that should fix the problem. As David was not able to repro the issue, please try it and see if it works for you and report back.

I have tried the code posted.

It partially solves the problem, but not completely.

The loading symbol is gone from the tab, but the status bar still reads 'waiting for ...'

FYI - the way Socket.IO gets around this issue is as follows:

The HTMLFile transport creates a forever iframe based transport for Internet Explorer. Regular forever iframe implementations will continuously trigger the browsers buzy indicators. If the forever iframe is created inside a htmlfile these indicators will not be trigged.

Some background info on ForeverFrame using htmlfile in IE:

The downside is that this "solution" only works in IE...

That's fine. IE is the only browser that uses forever frame anyways.

@davidfowl The loading symbol is gone from the tab, but the status bar still reads 'waiting for ...' message.do you know if there is any work around to remove this status bar.
you mentioned 'Send a pull request.' how to do that?
