Hello,

I am working an a script that uses AJAX if available, but otherwise uses a refresh.

I want to test it, but all my browsers support AJAX.....

Is there a way to disable XMLHttpRequest in my browsers, or in some other way make my browser support JavaScript but not AJAX?

Thanks!

simply set a js variable when you're debugging your scripts, so that it ALWAYS will not execute the AJAX portion, like this:

<script language="javascript">

//Variable to set during debugging
var isDisableAJAX = true;

if (isDisableAJAX) {
   //do whatever..
} else {
   //do XMLHttpRequest..
}

</script>


else you may really think to uninstall the XMLHttpRequest component from your PC, but I think it's not worth to try with. Hope this makes sense to you.

If you are using something other than IE, you might try creating your own (XMLHttpRequest "object"), so when an attempt is made to
create an object, it won't allow Ajax to be performed.

check this out...

 if (Ajax.getTransport()) {
  // Do Ajax...  Or save to a cookie..
  // Or even to the db and serve content accordingingly in the future..
 }
