PHP, Session and a Bottleneck

I learned something new, recently. Sessions in PHP are blocking. At Amuzi, I try to keep the user from have to go to another URI, this way the music won't stop. So I end up using a lot of Ajax.

There is a few javascript functions that are very useful but are not implemented on IE: Function.bind, String.trim, Array.indexOf, Array.lastIndexOf and a few more...

I found an script on stackoverflow (lost the link) that tests it those functions exists and, if it doesn't, implement them. Also, as I use console.log for debugging, IE kept claiming console.log doesn't exists, so I added that too (dummy version, just to stop it from complaining).

Here is the script: ie-compatibility.js
