— No, they are constantly trying to beat eachother in perf tests and such

— 

Yeah? where are their VERSUS tests produced by either one or another team? We do that for them and write "please fix" requests to trackers. They are not competing at all.

— I don't think they produce their own benchmarks that much

— They test using independent benchmarks

— I want that T shirt

— Hello guys

— How can i detect via JS if a basic autentication went wrong? For example, can i detect with javascript if I am unable to load a file in a protected folder?

— Ajax?

— My server seems to respond with status 401 for wrong username / password

— You generally just check if status is 200-299 for OK

— Let me explain myself: I have an app and a file in a separate folder, protected via .htaccess. If I press a button to load the protected file, my server asks for username and password. If I cannot do the login I am unable to load the file... it is possible to detect with a script that I cannot load the protected file?
