One of the reasons uki appeared is that I had to create a 4000-row, complex, client side searchable table. Just rendering the table made any IE busy for half a minute.
Uki uses progressive rendering and can render 30k+ lists and tables most instantly.
I can imagine living in a fairy-tale world where any browser supports HTML 5 and there’s no such thing as IE6 :) Unfortunately reality is different. I have to support all the browser spices available. Even the dinosaurs.
Thats why uki works with IE6+, Opera 9+, FF 2+, Safari 3+, Chrome. And it looks exactly the same in all of them.
