The startup time of Dojo has improved, and it it due to DOMContentLoaded now being the onload event.
This last weekend I finally implemented Dean Edwardsâ€™ DOMContentLoaded (with Matthias Miller and John Resig) solution for the dojo.addOnLoad event, as opposed to using the window.onload event to fire all initializationâ€¦and so far (with the exception of some minor side effects, notably with widgets that use images for layout) it is working very wellâ€“and the bottleneck of initial load performance (you know, where the page seems to take forever to load) has been markedly improved.
Itâ€™s almost like night and day, in some respects.
