I've noticed the occasional page that sits there for a while before beginning to load anything, but not a general slow down. I'd put my money on a server-side matter rather than something code is causing.
Combine has been slow for a few weeks for me. I'm on a 2mbit internet connection, all other websites are fast. I doubt this is coding, seems it's the server which is slow as pages lacking in queries are just as slow as ones with many...
I have the same problem. When I click on any button, it often takes a minumum of 20sec before the next page starts loading. Happens like 80% of the cases... Honestly.. the problem occurred around Khans Java-update.. Not saying it caused them, I think I had the problem before too.. Maybe that update needs enhancement?
Win 98 (FF 2.0 does not function with Win98)
Only difference between one setting and the other is that with it OFF, the page starts to load a bit faster, then hangs. With it ON .. the browser hangs entirely until the page loads ...
I'm now seeing 15-20 second page loads more than 75% of the time. (I'm used to slow loads, being on dialup, but this is getting ridiculous)
Then, at times, connection activity appears to be nil ... more than once I've thought I had a connection problem, yet other sites work fine. Several times I've asked on IRC if the Combine is down as sometimes it will actually stop completely for several minutes, then resume at page loads like those Terak described.
