    I nominate this vendor for the Hall of Shame as the
    ultimate slowest website owner: Cornell Dubilier

    It takes more than 10 minutes to open this page,
    can't say exactly how much (had lunch in the mean time),
    which was just enough to get this opened.
    Yes, I'm on ADSL. Firefox v2.

    What the **** are they thinking?

    Initially Firefox took 25 seconds, but later reloads fast, and pdf download is
    not bad. Explorer keeps asking for ActivX permissions because thats
    the way mine is set up. I quit that. And then I acepted all transactions.
    I don't see anything different, and when I shift pages all the prompts
    come back on.

    Perhaps one of my firefox plugins is having trouble with something on that page.
    Anyway, I used AdBlock to block offending part and now it loads normally.

    False alarm probably :)

  6. I have just (5 Jun 2009 16:50 GMT) tried it:

    iCab 2.9.9 without Javascript - no response after 1 minute
    iCab 3.0.5 with Javascript - no response after 1 minute
    Mozilla 1.3 - no response after 1 minute
    I Explorer 5.1 - no response after 1 minute
    Navigator 3.0 - 5k after one minute (average rate 124 bytes/sec)

    This is in the UK on broadband on a Beige Mac G3 running OS 8.6.

    Indeed, I tried many hours later and pdf download stalled for a couple minutes
    and than finished in a few seconds. Looks like an "intermittent contact"
    somewhere on their web server.

    So I guess they do belong into that hall of shame after all.

  8. works fine under IE8

    Opens _fairly_ quickly under Firefox v3.0.10 _TODAY_.

    Yesterday couldn't open it at all. Maybe someone got the message ?:)
