Thanks for the head's up. Much faster now.

I find it very hard to surf at work primarily because of the right column. Please give me an option to hide that right column!!!

A little late here but since I'm sure this relates to a lot of us - copy & paste into a text file and read from there. Viola, boring work related-looking styleforum "document"

I didn't like the new site the 1st day and I like it now.
Edit: I guess that doensn't seem to carry any weight given my join date but I've reading as a guest for a few years.

Many (most?) forums have a high degree of ad content now, and XP just doesn't support it well. Christ, my computer is less than 5 years old. First, the website has to load, then all the ad content. 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.

I've (almost) got a handle on the new forum layout. I don't mind the new B&S system even though I think the tweaks discussed in the B&S thread are going to make it better.

I'm also using Firefox with the Adblock Plus plugin, and I have had no problems with speed at all. It also takes some of the sting out of that sidebar. Try that if you can, but I realise if you're surfing from work you might be forced to use IE. cry.gif

Actually if you have a personal my documents folder you can probably just install Firefox or Chrome in there and use it. I doubt your employer will scold you for using another browser.

Note: unless your company makes that browser

Long time lurker, nascent poster. Site looks like it has been run through a tumble dryer. On an iPad it simply looks lame.

Windows 7 JavaScript performance is 42% better than XP per benchmark testing done by PC Magazine, which was in line with Microsoft tests.

It is getting much easier to find your way around now. Following up on my "first day of school" analogy, I think I would be comfortable showing a new freshman class around at this point.

Have we set up our table in the cafeteria yet?
