Please look at this page and navigate through any couple of pages: http://www.buysellboats.com.au
Can you notice the "flashes" between each page load?
If not, please look at this page: http://www.boats.com
and click on "Boats For Sale" and "Sell a Boat"
Now, can you notice how the menu stays between the page loads and that no "flash" of blank page is shown? I've seen that the next page is not shown until some of the content has been downloaded and the rest is rendererd progressively. The flash appears when you click on "Boat Loans", though.
I know plenty of other sites where this "flash" does not happen, ASP, HTML, PHP.
I've compared the HTML structure, image caching, download sizes, everything and can't find how to do it. I mimicked every difference I was aware of with no result. And I'm lost. I don't even know if this is a server issue, an ASP issue or what. For those who know ASP.NET I even turned off the OutputBuffer.
The question is: How can I make my page work like the one in the second example, retaining at least the header an menu which is consistent between some of the pages?
Thank you very much
