If you hate that slight flicker in IE browser between page transitions then you will find this snippet useful. When user navigate from one page to another, there is a slight white out before next page render on IE. On other browsers like FireFox or Chrome has relatively smoother handle for such transition. If your web application has significant number of post backs then this become more annoying to users.
To reduce this flicker in IE, simple add below META tags in HEAD section of your page.
By reducing the duration between fading content from previous page and revealing new content from next page, user experience relatively smooth transition between pages. Good thing about above implementation is that above META tags will not have any impact on other browsers.
