Remote WebDAV performance still lousy
Authored by: sabi on Nov 13, '01 09:35:23PM

The Finder still hangs when accessing WebDAV volumes, and performing other (seemingly simple) operations. Waiting for the remote side is fine, but it should at most stop actions from proceeding in the frontmost window, not prevent anything from happening in the Finder. If it were properly written, it shouldn't do this. Here's a quick test to try:

Mount your iDisk.

Click on one of the folder icons. Press an arrow key to move to one of the others. It takes at least a second to respond on my G4/533, sometimes longer (accompanied by spinning beach ball). There's no way switching from an un-highlighted to a highlighted depiction of a folder should take a second to complete.

Accessing WebDAV volumes locally, there is no such delay.
