    Somehow the site in total is so much slower than before the change. Especially when I open up multiple tabs it crashes the browser.

     

    I liked the old (green) version because it was so fast to browse and comfortable. It seems the site is badly compiled or overloaded now.

    Just noticed some sites seem to never completely load to the end.

    Interesting. I haven't experienced any speed or stability issues. On the contrary, it has been so much faster IMO.

    So far, I've never encountered any crashes yet using the new BN. It is also much faster than the old one, IMO.

    Because of the microtargeting  I now have a lot more ads.  Some are fast loading static images: some are graphic intense and are much slower.  And some, I suspect, are responsible for crashes.  The daily reviews are cumbersome to read and to follow the rest of a thread takes much longer. It is staring to look like style over substance.  Were there a lot of complaints about the content and format before or was it just speed and stability?

    Speed and Stability. As for the ads, if you are using Firefox or Chrome as your browser, get AD Block Plus as an add on extension and the ads will disappear.

    Speed is the same here.

    I've noticed a small improvement in speed.

    Oddly enough when viewing BN at work using Internet Explorer it is now so slow it is virtually unusable. It's fine on iPad and iPhone though.

    Pages are loading very slowly for me today. Up to now it has been ok.

    Which pages, Teardrop - any in particular, or all?

    Site seems faster and more responsive to me. But I do miss the old layout of the reviews - I thought it was much better than the new one.

     

    Still, basenotes in any format is better than no basenotes, so BIG UP for Grant and crew.

     

    Thanks folks. Keep up the work (apart from the, err........ reviews).

    When l first logged in about an hour ago, clicking on the most recent post in a thread took a couple of minutes to work. But it seems to be speeding up again now!

    Those who complain about slowness, are you accessing from a mobile device like a phone or ipad?

    I've noticed it's slow on mobile devices but fast on desktop/laptops.

    I'm using desktop view.

    Always on my laptop, never on a phone. lt's working fine now, though.

    I'm using 2 different laptops and it doesn't make a difference. Also browsing with iExplorer or Opera the result is the same. Very SLOW!

    Things got better all around (tablet & desktop) once I turned off the advertising.

     

    The "Advertising Preference" sits second from the bottom in the "Edit Account Details" section of your profile. I don't know if that is an option only for BNplus members or for everybody.

     

    I think some browser software allows you to filter some or all advertising, too.
