In the past few days, TIB pages seem very slow to access with Oregano2. Loading progresses OK, but then the progress bar gets stuck for about 10 seconds. This never used to happen (and doesn't happen with any other sites), and NetSurf doesn't seem to have a similar problem. Is this something on my machine (Iyonix) or has there been some server-side change?

Seems okay to me. Well, by O2 standards anyway ;)

Are you sure you aren't just being spoilt by NetSurf? ;)

Wonderful as NetSurf is, it's not that. :)

I've just done some timings. The BBC news home page takes about 3 seconds to download and render in O2 here (600kbit broadband). TIB homepage takes 17sec. The body of the page (32k) downloads in 2sec or so, and then it stalls for 15sec with the "Downloading document" indicator stuck at 32k. Same happens with every page on TIB that I've tried, but not on any other site at all.

Bit mysterious really. Could it be something at NTL? Cache?

Ah, well I am on freeserve dialup. Maybe that's disguising the pause.

Works fine over virgin broadband (which is just NTL repackaged cheaper). Try turning off CSS and Javascript. With O1 I turn off JS all the time for extra speed especially on Ebay. O2 is a horrible browser and it mucks up mouse clicks apparently by claiming KeyV. Who knows what the programmers were thinking claiming KeyV for a desktop application (if you can call it that).

I'd use netsurf, apart from the occasional crashes on the alpha builds and the fact that it doesn't handle the ebay multi-line hrefs.

Speed gets back to normal if I go via a proxy, it seems. I tried one of NTL's Huddersfield servers, (chosen at random), and it's now as fast as it used to be. :)

I'd still be interested to know why this *only* affected Iconbar and TIB-hosted pages....

I'm having the same problem. I'm on 1.5Mbit broadband in the USA, using O2. Each page access takes 10-15 seconds. Once the page starts loading, it's done almost immediately. No problem with NetSurf.
