Site viewing, often in articles, is unnecessarily slow and frustrating.

    I switched from Chrome to Opera this year and it's much faster. The fact it has a built in adblocker is a huge help too. But I've also read that Firefox had a huge update and supposedly it's one of the fastest browsers now. I'm going to check it out.

    And it's half as slow but twice as expensive as what I paid in NYC...

    Yes, but....
    To convert from say png with say a 5 Mb file size to jpeg with say 700Kb isn't a big deal.
    The picture will load a lot faster and the change in image quality is low.
    I read this site on an old laptop atm.
    I could set up an image block but then I won't see all the pretty pictures....:confused:
    I'm just moaning really. I wanted to read a particular article this morning and it just wouldn't load....

    I've hated Firefox from day one. :lol: Maybe I will look into them again as well.

    And if a page has too many large pictures on it, I can post on that page either. So many threads I have to avoid. :(
