Default Re: Pricegrabber widget.. slow loading nvnews

it has to do with the rendering engine, simple as that. they decided to take a different approach to rendering in the gecko rendering engine, and because of it, there are some descrepencies between the two. sometimes one is faster than the other, that's all.

I still have problems with this. On my copy of firefox, it is intermittent. E.g. sometimes it is slow as hell, whereas other times its instantaneous.

A bit off topic,
but in Opera has any one else noticed some serious slowdowns when the nvnews front page loads?

How large are the E3 videos? If they are small enough I can host them for forever without having to worry about bandwidth.

What I did here was just AdBlock the pricegrabber php. That got rid of the prices and left the product links which still work fine. I was having the same thing as AlphaWolf where sometimes it would load quickly and sometimes take a while.

Yeah, it looked really bad. I inadvertently deleted an ending </table> tag.

Glad I saved the template before I hacked, uh..., changed it
