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.

firefox is open to a virus that will let somone else take control of your cam and mic.

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....
