My teeth are getting chipped from a semipermanent habit of grimacing while I wait for web pages to load. I have broadband, several fast computers, and I've been around since before the web (had email since 1991), and so I know when to grimace. It's getting worse.
While many web sites have a snappy load-time (Ars Technica, fer instance), some blogs, like Techcrunch and Mashable are so loaded with widgets that they take at least 30 seconds to fully render. It's getting to be a frustrating exercise to click through from a feed to the site on these otherwise decent services.
Am I alone in noticing this?
