slow popup, solutions ?

P: n/a
I'm developing a web-based application to replace a thin-client system,

and I've used some popups but they are awfully slow coming up.

Of course I'm using, window.open() but would consider other solutions:
div's ?no closing mechanism?
applets, etc.
I'd appreciate any feedback.

window.open() can be quite slow. Consider in-page DIV popups.
For example, http://www.javascripttoolbox.com/lib/popup/example.php
or http://www.litotes.demon.co.uk/js_info/pop_ups.html

thanks for the links and info.
Re: in-page Div
It would be a good solution, except for the fact that what I need to
show, is non-trivial.
In fact, it is a PHP/XML/XSL report and could be in-depth and lengthy.
I'm considering pre-making the window or caching it somehow.
just brainstorming: Possibly I can I make use of: zOrder or
visibility

You could certainly paint the DIV as part of the page with display:none,
then just show it when you are ready.

You could also pop up the div with a "Please wait" message and populate it
via an ajax call back to the server.
