Problem with ads delaying page loads fixed

Recommended Posts

Simon    177

Ads on Neowin will no longer slow down the page. You'll notice that both the front page and the forums can now download and render often in under a second.

We got the go ahead from our ad provider to move ads into iframes, which are the last to load on a page.

Hope you guys enjoy the faster Neowin, and I hope I'm not the only one now loading pages in well under a second!

Good work mate :)

Is it possible to set the IFRAME border to none rather than 3D looking border to give it a more flat look?

Thank you so much. It was so annoying to wait for the ads on each page load.

You guys are awesome.

Excellent. The root cause of why the ads sometimes take 5 seconds to load is still to be determined, but at least it won't be affecting your daily surfing quite so much now.
