Designing Browser-Enabled InfoPath Forms for Performance
Way back in May the InfoPath team announced a series of articles they were going to write (they finished at the end of June) on designing browser-enabled forms for performance in InfoPath Forms Services. Today when I was reviewing one of my forms I remembered reading these and figured I should post about them briefly.
If you ever build InfoPath browser-enabled forms for InfoPath Forms Services (part of the Enterprise CAL for SharePoint) I highly recommend reading the following posts.

One of those things that helped me improve my forms building skillset. I hope it helps you as well,
