"It must be a local problem "
Yes and no. Sometimes one particular web site or page will be dog slow while others won't, as a result of improper coding or Too Much Stuff being loaded from the slow web page. Like active-x and other scripting technologies that may cause problems in specific browsers or versions, while cleaner web sites don't have those problems.
When I hit "new posts" on Sailnet, the drop-down deploys glacially slowly. Some pages also open very slowly--and start to paint in odd positions before they finish loading. That's all signs of "bad" coding on the web page. There are too many fancy tools and active technologies (and some are brought in by ad links) these days.
