Since yesterday afternoon (06/19/12) around 12pm et, Many Google products are running incredibly slow. Gmail times out... Maps won't display, etc. Chrome times out regularly.
I don't want to draw out the flaming, but when I use Google search engine, the ads load instantly, but the shopping and other organic results seem to take 2-3 seconds longer before they load.
Its not browser specific... and the result is the same in any browser. Also, we run on a 30mbit line and speeds are not slow anywhere else. All other webs load great... and broadband tests come back clean at 10k+ mbit.
This is actually the third Google anomaly we've spotted in 2 days, and I wonder if we are being used as a Guinea pig, with the test having some kind of glitch.
