Yeah, that thing, while not quite as ill-placed on my 'droid tablet, does take up valuable, scarce real estate. In fact: On my tablet, all the SN annoyances of old come back, because I don't have the blocking plug-ins and so-on like I do on my full-fledged browsers. Slow, agonizingly slow page loads, mainly. Sometimes page loads just plain hang the tablet, forcing me to reboot it. That is not SN's fault. That's crap 'droid/'droid app coding. But SN is one of the sites that triggers that bad behaviour more than others.

Are they? Yours is the first such complaint I've seen. And, if the chat status garbage is to be believed, SN users are using the chat thing. But, yeah, I'm tending to go elsewhere on my tablet, now.
