That’s how fast dotTech has been loading for me. The first block is dotTech.org’s main page, the second the forums, and the third the forum topic “Audio Problems”.

It’s loading fast now!

EDIT: and this is my forum post’s initialization:

160KBps!

Oh, the site that was :(

This is up from those dark times when dotTech loaded painfully slow. ;-)

The “system monitor” built into Ubuntu, unfortunately. Cry


Although I haven’t tried it, this looks like it provides a distantly-similar thing in Windows:

GOOGLE CHROME! GOOGLE CHROME! NOTHING BEATS LIKE GOOGLE CHROME!

 

Though I did get 2 blue screens of death from Chrome once… -_-” **sigh**…

 

What browser did you use Locu? Firefox? ‘Cause Dot.tech is loading real fast for me… by using GOOGLE CHROME!

 

Chrome isn’t that bad, it’s pretty fast anyways and security is not bad. :) Besides… I learned that Firefox was loosing its speed due to some unknown reason.

I used Firefox yes, but here’s the thing:

This is about the server download speed, which has nothing to do with the browser it’s in.  So argument nulled.

I like the seahorse picture. lol

 

BTW, dotTech loads faster with gears enabled (I just found out about that).

Although, technically, gears doesn’t make it load it faster because it saves the pictures and stuff on your computer, but it does spend less time loading.

Actually the way that web browsers work they store the pictures on your computer. Until, of course, you close the browser. That’s where Gears comes in: it saves the pictures (and scripts and CSS) over sessions.

Will a privacy cleaner, e.g. CCleaner clean the Gears data? I’ve never tried it.

I don’t know, I don’t use Gears. (No Safari 4 Mac support? Confused JK, I use FF for Mac.)

What is this gears exactly? i use the same method for saving  flash videos, i pinch it out of the cache before it disappears.

 

so, if i visit somewhere like facebook, and a friend has changed their picture, will this detect it and update the image?

No, Google Gears is:

Gears, formerly Google Gears,[2]
is software offered by Google that “enables more powerful web applications,
by adding new features to your web browser.”[3]
Released under the BSD license,[4]
Gears is free and open source software.
