Extremely Sluggish Websites
« on: September 12, 2018, 10:40:06 AM »
I've encountered two or three websites that are always slow, Rural King, a dry goods outlet, is the worst.  It reacts at a speed way beyond sluggish.  It's so slow that early on, I thought my computer was jammed, and would just drive 30 miles to the store to see if an item was actually in the store as it was listed on their site, and sometimes it was not.

Now I click on an appropriate option, and go make coffee.  I suspect management doesn't realize it has created a business unfriendly option for people to buy goods.  They are a mostly walk in outlet that supports a website as an obligation:  "Hey everyone!  We have a website.  We are hip, so drive to our store."

Redbox is another one, but not as slow as Rural King.  And this is odd because they encourage people to use their website to reserve movies, and then create a crawler system.  It's also odd because their earlier web design was lightening fast.

Or is it me?  I don't think so because all other sites are lightening fast on my computer.  I think it's management that doesn't realize the importance of on line business and the ever increasing place it occupies in the economy.

It's not just you.  Some sites I visit are slowing down.  Some demand a subscription for "full service" to provide what they offered before for free.  But things seem slower in general lately.

Ironically, it was slow to start to load.  And eventually didn't.

OK.the loading bar was COOL!  I never saw one the started in the middle and moved to the edges.  But then I got an arc around a circle that kept going for 5 minutes before I gave up.  Firefox 63.Ob5. Maybe a beta?

Tried it on Safari too, no luck.  Is it a Windows thing?  I'm Mac.
