hi all,
i've got a selcetbox (multiple) which is filled by javascript. only problem
is that i have aprox 1000 options to add to that select, and that adding
lasts for 5-6 seconds. Even select.length  = 0 (on filled element) lasts for
few seconds.

ok. i have large amount of data to preload, and i also do some operations on
that data, but it's all very fast.
so i thought it must be some IE rendering issue, and i tried to set = 'none' during the adding, and still it is slow.

anybody had similar problems? is there any speedup trick?
