91% of sites are faster than Neowin.

Don't I know it. Gotta feed those hamsters, guys.

Or, take Dave and Redmak to a nice dinner. :)

There are a lot of other very interesting stats.

I wonder why? maybe because it is in fact, very slow.

Define slow

I know we had some issues past 2 months but those should have been fixed 2 weeks ago. Plus alexa stats you can take for a grain of salt.

To be fair a lot of that slowness is due to Facebook.

In fact.... I think you can definitely see the culprit here. Neowins code is actually quite quick.

in the past due to certain conditions some of the ads here would make chrome use 100% cpu... it would come and go depending on what ad.

Neowin is usually fairly quick for me -- many times when it's not, it's the fault of my Net connection.

Yea, the site was always really slow for me before i blocked facebook from every web site I visit. It loads much quicker now, and doesn't seem to get stuck halfway through loading pages any more either.

Ahhh, but Facebook is the future! Everything must be linked to Facebook now, if you're not linked, you're bound to die a slow death.... Or be connected and slowly stay alive...

Anyway, YES, Neowin is slow and it's annoying. Other site are also connected on Facebook and are not THAT slow.

Neowin never really feels fast. posting especially is very slow. but when I occasionally check the site at 5-6 in the morning (CET) when I get up to drive my GF to work, it's not been just slow lately, it's been almost standing still, clicking a thread it's taking forever before it even begins loading. later in the day, back to normal speed.

the facebook plugin is the last thing to load and usually makes the website stay in a loading state
