Default SNOWEST: One way to increase the speed of SnoWest!

Over the last couple days several users have reported that by moving from Microsoft Internet Explorer over to Mozilla Firefox they saw MASSIVE increases on overall forum speed.


We confirmed this report with FIREFOX and now know WHY it is working so much faster than Internet Explorer.

Firefox has a different implimentation of the JavaScript processor in it, and it is doing a MUCH BETTER JOB on processing the data stream coming from the SnoWest server. by processing the JavaScript faster, it is able to display the forum pages faster, and reduce your wait time.

I am going to send out a PM to all members advising them that if they are suffering from any slowdowns that they go here and seriously consider downloading and installing FireFox as an alternate browser.

OR, you could get rid of that stupid shout bar, and limit image size in a thread, stop attaching images and only link to them, limit avatar and signiture sizes. It's a forum yet it looks more like an ad page out of the local paper most of the time, adds a needed I get that but get rid of the animation and run linked picture adds and it speeds it up as well.

Make just as much differance. You want thousands of people to change when 1 person screwed the forums up even after most people said leave it alone. I know you said you were being forced so I get that but it just screw the site up.

Always had Firefox and SW is now the slowest forum on the web. Painful at times, tolerable at others.

Nope.
I neither want, nor am asking, anyone to change.
I just want to be sure people know there is a potential solution to a problem they are complaining about.

Whether or not they choose to use it is entirely up to them.

It is running SLOWER than it has in the past. Other forums run fine, SNOWEST sight has become more cumbersome.

The only viable longterm solution is for us to buy new servers.

But given the current "Challenging Financial Conditions" of the industry as a whole, right now I am looking for any solutions that might help tide some of the members over until we can get a budget for the new servers.

In general I would think that you would want to tailor the website to fit the browsers of the users rather than having the users tailor their browsers for the website.

I agree 100%
The solution is the generous application of money to buy new high speed servers.

Given that money is tight at the moment, I am just letting you know there is something you can do at the moment.

FireFox is simply FASTER than internet explorer for the time being.

I disagree, forum speeds are a direct result of there content. Things like attaching images rather then linking them to a host, attachments take up server spacer. Forum add ons also affect page load speed. Those bars in our avatar area, and the shout bar at the top for example, not only affect the data base on the server but the load times on the page.

Forums software is meant to be simple on purpose, you start adding "trinkets" and it slows things down. This is already a very clean and useful layout, it just needs to stay that way. Trying to reduce the size of your header graffix is another way to make the forum fast, not based on how long it takes to load out here but how long it takes to transmit the requested data off a server you seem to think is already taxed. Speed is a two way street, trust me I deal with band width shaping everyday in voip aplications.

You would be surprised what can be done.
