I have a few roles within my web application and although I use master pages, I am currently using a regular aspx form to check roles and then redirect to an htm page which is supposed to show an ajax animation.
The animation works fine in FF but not in IE. In addition, this redirecting is real slow and not very appealing. I would like to use some kind of changing text, and maybe a colored div that slowly moves across the page. I've seen some examples, moves but can't figure out how to do it.
Would this be a faster way of redirecting and if yes, how do I implement, if not what would be the best way to redirect a user to a slow loading page when I also have to deal with roles?
