Working on new MtGox features

While working on the new Mt.Gox, we've been considering implementing websockets natively for everyone (with a fallback on long polling if not available).

Around 44% of our visitors in the past 30 days have native support for websocket (Chrome, Safari), and another 45% can enable it in their browser quite easily (Firefox+Opera). The remaining major part is MSIE, which should have support in near/less near future[1].



Since people in here have more of a technical background, let us know what you think (just spare me the usual "websocket is bad, use direct sockets" - we need something that works in web browsers... and check the new websocket framing in -06 and better first, it's no longer some weird \xff).

Websocket is good, and fallback to flashsocket in IE and browsers with websockets disabled would be very nice. You should look for something like http://socket.io/ to perform transparent fallback for you.
