I'm seeing a lot of slow loading pages, the culprit in many cases is Google. You can see the pages hanging waiting for various Google addons to load.
I would rather disagree. IMHO it will be a biased opinion if we pin point Google only. The web has changed a lot over the years and so is the way people (webmasters) used to do activities necessary for his website. Google Analytics, Facebook share, AddThis, Wibya, Discuss.. there are so many addons these days that even bigger websites opt to make use of rather than thinking of building one of its own.
Yes this has added to the page loading time but on the other hand it has opened up the web a lot, made the web a lot more easier and less scary. So I see pros and cons both.
