Browser Freezes while loading XMLDoc

I have a XML document that is generated by the sever.
I also have a page that reads the XML document every 2 seconds and writes the contents into a DIV.

My question is why when it is loading the XML DOC will the browser window freeze? I would like to have a good refresh rate but more importantly I want the page to act normally even when it is reading the XML document. It currently runs on Firefox and IE but both browsers experience this hang up.


I would like to solve this ASAP.

Maybe you are not giving the document enought time to finish loading?  Just at shot in the dark.  Does it load with out the refreshing every 2 secs? Are you using AJAX to read the server?

I am loading the XML with Javascript using the new ActiveXObject but for some reason when it is loading the xml the browser hangs until it finishes loading.
The JavaScript is calling a http document from the server that is formatted in XML.

The problem is when the Page is being loaded all other JavaScript and even the browser stops responding. How would I tell JavaScript to run a process in parallel and not stop all other processes?
