THought I'd mention that the calls to the FB and Twitter API's are absolutely killing page load and response times. In fact it's so bad I avoid coming to visit.

A lesson there somewhere.

I changed my default WebmasterWorld start page a few weeks ago as it was taking ~20 to ~30 seconds for the page to finish loading.

Mind if I ask which browser you're using? Firefox? If so, do you have plugins like Firebug or LiveHttpHeaders? I've found that disabling these can improve the situation (though, obviously, not an ideal solution).

What speed of a machine are you using, browser and plug-ins?

After I disabled Firebug in FF it snaps to the screen, but I'm also using fast hardware and 20MB internet connection. With that said, it's not bad on my netbook on a 3G network either, but not nearly as fast.

Guess I don't get the complaint because the full screen of WebmasterWorld text is displayed theoretically before twitter and facebook buttons, you can scroll, click and do other things as the browser multi-tasks downloading buttons in the background.

You don't have to wait for those elements to load to use the page and they stop loading the minute you click on a link.

What am I missing here?

I've resorted to right clicking and loading an individual forum in a new FF tab. Looking at a few webpage speed testers the issue is the Twitter and Facebook JS and jpg loading slow.

On a few of my sites I've resorted to hosting the js and editing the js to host the images as well. In some cases the speed improvement was 3x to 5x faster.

Yes, quite a lot faster!

Thankyou Brett.
