in thread LWP socket connection

In general, with a typical internet connection, the choice of programming language won't have a significant impact on download times.  Unless your network, and the server on the other end, are extremely fast, the time spent by the client program creating sockets, shoveling bytes program-internally, etc., will be roughly one or two orders of magnitude less than the time spent waiting for things that go on program-externally, and are thus out of control of the program(-ming language).

As always, if you really want to know, write simple test programs, and benchmark them in a controlled environment.

[Discipulus]: to crash is not the default behaviour of IE? ;=)
[Discipulus]: so every library (js) to sdelect and modify the id parameters can be good.
[Discipulus]: I never understood something: I can on the fly modify the XML structure of the SVG using for example XML::Twig ?
[Corion]: Discipulus: If you want to rewrite the SVG, then yes, something like XML::Twig should be enough. I would try to not modify the SVG but only modify the display, but so far I haven't convinced IE to change the style...
Corion gives up
