    I am getting slowdowns again when the page is trying to load ads from g.adspeed.net Running the latest version of firefox on a mac running snow leopard if it matters. Anyone else with similar issues?

    You have a Mac and you have not let me check it out? I take back all the cool stuff I've said about you.
    I'm running a lame old Dell Inspiron 6000 circa 2005 vintage with IE8 at home and it is blistering fast. Today must be a good day!

    Rob, I haven't noticed anything but it may be cool to profile the site to see where the slowdown really is. Try this:http://developer.yahoo.com/yslow/

    It will show you which files / sites are slowing this down the most and where bottlenecks exist. May help narrow down the problem.

    I'm noticing a lot of lagging as well. Firefox 3.5.7 and Win 7.

    When I load it in Firefox of IE(eeeeew), it loads pretty slowly. Google Chrome loads it almost instantly.

    Slow on my MAC, but I'm used to it under performing on the internet and thought it was just a MAC thing...

    Ditto to all the above. Sometimes I just back out and try later, but it is really annoying.

    Okay, the load time is getting ridiculous. I have to hit the back button and try it at least twice for it to load properly. And I'm doing this for just about every click I make.

    If it is Firefox that is the problem, it's the first one I've come across.

    I've never had any real "problems" with Firefox other than it being painfully slow compared to Chrome on just about any page. I don't consider IE an option anymore. I just keep as many browsers installed that I can to test out sites I'm building and whatnot.
