On page reload Chrome flickers (blank page before new one - takes a millisecond).

It has to do with this:

var element = document.createElement('div'),
child = document.createElement('div'); = '0';
var brokenOffsetParent = (child.offsetParent === element);
element = child = null;

it seems. When this is gone - the page wil not flicker.

I have no idea what this does, but hope it can be fixed - I manuallly ripped out the code i needed to get my scrolltabs working (alla tabs Ext Js).

(other browsers don't flicker)

It worked well in MT core 1.2.5.

I commented out the function:

getOffsetParent: brokenOffsetParent ? function()

  • and the stuff above and the code works fine in Chrome now...

Hoping this would have been fixed by Chrome. It's an IE check (the code mentioned) so we kinda need it.
