Node.JS Looking for an alternative to socket.IO


I’ve been testing Node.JS and Socket.IO for a couple of days. I’m interested in a real-time application that’s why I’m testing Socket.IO, problem is I found many problems on several browsers. Chrome always works but IE and Firefox only some times.

My question is, is there a way to push information from the server to the client without sockets ( I don’t want to set an interval in the client and check if something changes on the server side every “n” seconds.

Socket.IO has had some bugs recently, but they’re being actively worked on, so I encourage you to check back later (it may even already be working better now, as there are commits almost every day). This is the issue you should be watching:
