Ads making website slow
It just may be me, but today this site was destroying my browser. My CPU went to 100% every time I had a sailnet page open. Upon closing the tab with sailnet, cpu returned to normal. A bit of debugging and I'm 99% sure it was the Furono ads. I blocked ad.afy11.net via my hosts file (it is the source of the ad) and now I can browse sailnet without issues.
The ad in question was an orange holiday theme ad, and was displayed 3-4 times on the website. It was either flash or java (sorry didn't check).
For info, here's my setup: Macbook Pro 2.4ghz, 4gb of ram, with Firefox.
