Many of the views in FortiNAC are highly dependent on JavaScript. The browser used directly impacts the performance of these views. For example, the new Host view in one browser may take 2 seconds to load, but the same view in a different browser may take 20 seconds. To improve performance, it is recommended that you choose a browser which is fast at processing JavaScript, such as, Google Chrome. Articles on comparing the performance of various web browsers are freely available on the internet. Some performance sites include:
