Are many www sites getting slower these days?

This one is still just as quick as I remember it, but there are newer ones that are crucifyingly slow with untold pseudo-video adverts running continuously... ;o(

Install Flashblock -- it makes the world of difference. I don't mind static, non-intrusive ads, as many sites rely on advertising to survive.

But yes, there are some horrendous sites with several Flash video adverts playing at the same time. Eats through your bandwidth and sends CPU usage through the roof...

Don't forget adBlock plus Wink It takes care of those pre-ads on youtube as well as the pop-ups.
