    Ah, the irony. The site became unreachable for me just after I noticed the "slow OSO problem solved" link at the top. I clicked on it, and couldn't get the site to load for 2 hours.

    And don't tell me about Firefox. I was one of the first to point it out, and i've been running Firefox for 3 years now.

    Why? Does IB have some kind of mind control over you, forcing you to come here, as long as your membership is in effect?

    Nah, I just want to able to say i'm not a paying member for all of the slow loading crap (or not loading at all) that goes on. I'll still log in tho, just won't pay in the future. It's a shame, there is alot of good info on this site, and IB just seems to want to throw everything away.

    You've got to be kidding me. This site only works correctly with 1 browser???? Great job IB, you guys could F-up a train wreck. I will not download a browser to accommodate your site nor will I press 1.

    Firefox is a good browser, i use it as well, but it can't make slow websites fast.

    I can't read these threads any more, especially the silly answers.
    The reason somewhere else. Here is the free analysis why:

    22.3K 1 HTML/Text
    59.4K 14 JavaScript Files
    2.7K 2 Stylesheet Files
    7.1K 4 CSS Images
    455.2K 41 Images
    5.6K 2 Unknowns

    552.5K Total size
    64 HTTP requests

    Lot's of http requests that take time, not minized css and js files, old fashion html, to large images.

    A standard click loads 550k of data->too much.

    It would take a good developer 2 -3 days to improve the page load by 30%. The owner of OSO could save lot's of $$ in money for the servers if they would minimize the load....
