I Need Your Help, Folks

I need your help. I've fielded some complaints that this page loads too slowly from some of my trusted readers. Now, it doesn't load slowly for me at all. Those who have told me it does load too slowly are using Internet Explorer. I am using the most recent FireFox browser and the page fully loads in mere seconds.

So - how does this page load for you and if you don't mind, let me know what type of browser you are using? Please leave a comment and let me know. Thank you!

For those of you who, for some reason are still using IE, do yourselves a favor and at least try FireFox. It's free and it's a great browser. If you're skeptical or apprehensive about leaving IE for FF, well...go read the C/NET Battle of The Browser article. Click on the golden "On to round 1" and "On to round 2" etc to navigate through the story. Guess which browser won the C/NET battle?

The page does tend to load slowly for me. Sometimes very slowly. I always thought it might have to do with the fact that I use a Mac (a very old two processors ago Mac) and the Safari browser. Safari doesn't do all web pages very well. The sight also loads slow with Camino, a Mozilla based browser for Macs. Beyond that, I haven't got a clue. Hey wait. Let me call Big Carbon Al. I hear he's an internet whizbang.

Sorry. I couldn't help getting a dig on a Lem.
I use FF and your page has always loaded slowly. The content is worth the wait, though. :P
Molson - DSL:

I don't know what to say...

My PC is probably as ol as your Mac Molson, and DSL - I believe your PC is fairly recent.

The page loads real quickly for me.

I will have to keep what you said in mind for some future possible redesigns that might speed up the pageload.

Thanks for adding your comments.
I have the added advantage of having both firefox and IE on my home PC and IE is slower. But I wouldn't say your page is any slower than mine :-).
Heh - thanks Dane...I've been meaning to talk to you about how slowly your page loads.....

JUST kidding!
