Amazon and Huffington Post are almost unusable now, it takes forever to load all the ad content. I order a sample, A SAMPLE, of cologne from from fragrancenet.com, and now when I log onto a BMW forum, I get ad content from fragrancenet.com for that sample, which I didn't even like. I don't blame SF, or Amazon, or HuffPost, for wanting to make money, but until I upgrade to a Cray supercomputer, I am simply discouraged from visiting these websites. And it might be worth it to SF, HuffPost, Amazon, etc., the market will tell.
This is probably the stupidest post I have ever read. I can guarantee you that it is not your operating system that is causing all these websites to load slowly.
Honestly, you probably have a virus or some type of aggressive spyware.
Also, you probably only have 512mb to 1gb of ram which is the main reason why these websites load so slowly for you.
