Thread: Unresponsive webpages...
September 12th, 2009, 08:54 PM #1
Okay... i just want to lodge a formal complaint...
WTF is with the apparent trend in webpages removing control from the viewer? I've gone to several webpages that won't let you scroll, or do anything - probably because of too much content, or something....
here's an example of what i'm talking about...
Snow Patrol Tour Dates in 2009, Snow Patrol Concert Schedule - Eventful
once the page fully loads, you can scroll, but prior to that, it takes sometimes up to 30 seconds... and you're just sitting there, and it's completely unrespsonsive. WTF? Who is doing this, and why?
Is it that it's trying to open a popup, and then looking for its existence, so a popup blocker would cause it to time out? ugh - what a major annoyance...
Dear internet: knock it off!!!
kthanksbye.Usually, terrible things that are done with the excuse that progress requires them are not really progress, but just terrible things.

there must be something it's calling, or maybe it's just network congestion. i tried it in both ie and firefox... it was a little better in firefox, but still lagged.
Wait, i think it might be loading a video while it lags... but even the busy animation (loading circle) stalls... hmmm. I'll have to start paying attention to the pages that do this and see if there's something in common. Or, i could just stop caring about it...Usually, terrible things that are done with the excuse that progress requires them are not really progress, but just terrible things.

The link seems to work fine for me - the only annoying thing I found was the page-based pop-up asking if I wanted to be notified...
If the loading circle "stalls", then it is possible that it is something on your computer that is causing the lag... I'd open TaskManager and see what that tells you.......
