Description

Once bug http://trac.dojotoolkit.org/ticket/2235 is done and we have an IEStorageProvider, if we are on Internet Explorer and for some reason can't use the FlashStorageProvider? (can't install Flash for example due to locked down box) invoke the IEStorageProvider. This would mean we would have to somehow know Flash installation failed. One idea is to set a cookie if we are on IE and try to install, then when the page reloads see if that cookie is there and if Flash works; if it doesn't, use IEStorageProvider and clear the cookie. Need to do some thinking and testing on this. Need to find out typical configuration of a locked down corporate box. Ultimate goal of this bug is to improve Dojo Storage's reliability in a niche condition, which is a corporate IE no-Flash and no installation environment.
