    Answer is really quite simple.

    That little scrolling WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW takes names and actions and links to what you did and piles them all together.

    That would be ok if it was static (in other words not moving).

    However .. its moving along at a steady pace .. updating the table .. AND NOT CLEARING THE VARIABLES.

    What that means in terms of memory usage .. is every second you keep your machine on with the screen active .. its piling just a little more junk into your browser .. until .. things start running REALLY REALLY slow. This usually takes place after about 5 mins left on the same screen. If you are flipping screens you wont notice it because each time the screen is refreshed the memory is wiped. On the same screen .. trying to move on it .. and eventually flip off it .. becomes PAINFULLY slow.

    So its nice .. but destined to cause problems long term in user interactivity. Unless you dont want anyone to actually sit on a thread and read it.

    Just a point to note… while it is quicker on Firefox, it is still agonizingly slow.

    I have tried firefox and I found other sites to run slow.

    Haha, hey, I was there too, we all were….. now we all have Firefox….

    I sold computers and mobile phones from 1999, for many years (trying not to age myself here, feeling old!) and seriously, the tech that has come and gone…. scary.
