Use a browser with QlikView Server + WebServer

Browser performance

Because of the problems with WebView mode in the QlikView Desktop client, performance will always be better when using a “regular” internet browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera) than when using a QlikView Server (QVS) and a web server.  This is even true if you run the QVS and web server on the same machine as the QlikView Desktop client; the performance boost within a browser radically outweighs the resource footprint of the QVS and web server.

Here is a summary of performance testing with QlikMaps, listed from fastest to slowest:

  • Chrome  (clear winner)
  • Firefox, Safari  (tie)
  • Opera
  • IE9
  • IE8
