Visiting Friends But Feeling Like a Snail

I have been visiting some friends here today. Something has been happening when I try exploring this site and I've been wondering whether it is just something peculiar to my own computer or if it is a quirk of the site. When I open several tabs, everything slows down to a snail's pace. I start to think I should give up and try again another day. In fact a few times when I've visited PP, that is just what I have done.

In some ways I love the way things are so easy on this site. But because of this sluggishness, I have avoided spending much time here so far.

Is this something people experience generally, or is my computer just starting to slow down? I sometimes find my computer acting more slowly than it used to, but it seems to be especially slow when I come here.

Any ideas?

It's happening to me, too. It's especially bad if I've got lots of other tabs open, too. I've usually got about 40 open at once plus other programs. If I leave the computer and have to bring the display back up, everything slows to a crawl once again.

I think it does have to do with the number of tabs open. I try to keep it under 10 or so. That seems to keep the speed up.

No, but I don't keep a large amount of tabs open.

I have a slow typing experience sometimes but it seems to have gotten better over the last week. Not sure why. I didn't do all my maintenance though so cleaning my browser and my cookies may have helped. Have you tried that?

Same here. It's the videos under the posts that seem to be on autostart which are causing me pain. I flagged it to elitecodex a couple of days back but if these videos are bringing in the moolah it's a hard call.
