And the stand on vessel shouldn't have to yield to the give way vessel, but sometime it must.

Some might call it practical. (There are other reasons to shun IE, but you don't care so I won't bother.)

Oddly enough: Sometimes switching browsers can "fix" a problem.

And slow on all platforms.

The problem is with the ads or the tracking (stats.ads.is). No question about it. Not IE, connection, or anything else.
That would appear to be the case.

Well, I guessed that one right, didn't I?

John, the problem is clearly with the some of the plethora of advert and advert-supporting sites SailNet is loading up with every page. I currently have three (3) domains in my ABP list, all of them as a result of visiting SN. In fact: It was the poor performance of SN, engendered by some of its adverts, that caused me to install Adblock Plus in the first place.

I rarely, if ever, have this problem at any of the other sites I visit. Some of them have very high traffic volumes, but manage to survive w/o trashing their sites with a bunch of adverts. A couple others have lots of adverts, but somehow seem to avoid the lousy advert servers that would drag their sites into the slow lane.

Jim
