Don't hand me the line about it doesn't cost anything. Every time you visit this site, a hit is registered and iRV2 gets a payment from the ad company. As much as I enjoy the site and have friends here, I just don't want to do this silly waiting game any more.

Doc,
If this site is one that you really enjoy, then why not download one of the other browsers that have been identified as being quicker and when visiting this site, just use it. When finished go back to your slow browser. What's it going to hurt?

Just saying.

We'll all miss you for a little while.

This has been a lot of peoples question right from the start, why does it take a new browser (download) to make this site (only this site) work half way fast as it use to? The problem as others and myself is just on here, nothing else, if it was something that changed in a update it would affect other sites also, not the case. So now we need to use chrome or fire fox so IRV2 will work half way fast? They are faster for sure but it is just a band-aid on a problem here.

Have you tried changing from IE8 to FireFox or Safari.

Just curious, how have you verified that out of the millions of sites on the internet that this is the only site that works better with FF or Safari?

If you read my post again, it just says that the other browsers " are faster for sure" and did not state that they were faster on "millions" of web sites. I downloaded firefox again just to try it here and it is faster than IE but I do not care for it. If you use FF or something else other than IE ,is it faster for you and do you run something else? When I was using FFon here it did speed my browesing up on IRV2 but did not notice its speed anywhere else on the web as my DSL is fast as a click except for on here.

Sorry I took your words "only this site" to mean no other site.

When a majority of users are not having any issues with a site you can usually make the assumption that there is a either a problem with the end user's setup or with network throughput.

If you are using a Windows based OS get away from IE. Even the most recent releases of IE9 are slow, cumbersome and, as usual, memory hogs. Try one of the other free browsers like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Install Adblock Plus into the browser. Empty the browser cache. You'd be surprised at the difference that will make.

I use Google Chrome with Adblock Plus almost exclusively and am highly dependent on either RV park WiFi or 3G through my phone. I use a 5 year old laptop running Windows Vista Ultimate and I just don't experience anything even close to the issues that some folks have described. I occasionally experience a little lag during page loading but that is not limited to IRV2 and everyone here knows it has more to do with an overloaded Local Tel Fiber Optic line than anything else.

The easy solution for most of you is:

1) Download and start using either Mozilla Firefox Web Browser or Google Chrome Browser.

2) Install Ad Block Plus for FireFox or Ad Block Plus for Google Chrome.

3) Dump your browser cache weekly or at least monthly.

The first 2 suggestions are all free downloads and will cost you nothing but a little time and effort. The third is just standard maintenance that we all should be doing anyway.

To paraphrase Dennis' quote, why curse in the dark when all you have to do is turn on the light? Firefox and Chrome both run circles around IE any day of the week.

Some are saying that they don't want to change and that they shouldn't have to since their browser is working on other sites just fine. They state that the problem is iRV2, and it just might be. I believe the "technician" is looking into it.

Most likely it has to do with page loading and that is driven by revenue and the ads are revenue. So I'm just saying that if you enjoy the camaraderie of this site and all the wonderful information that is contained within, it just might behoove one to download a faster browser. You can open up your slow browser, and you can open up the faster browser simultaneously. Just use "Alt Tab" to switch back and forth, and when finished with one it can be closed.

NOW, PLEASE READ: There is a web site that is nice to access when information on the Freightliner chassis and components are being looked for. FIREFOX WILL NOT open that website. Well, it will open it, but once you try to log in it will not work. Ineternet Explorer is needed to access the information on that site.

Oh my! What to do. Well, on the MAC here at the S&B I have VMWare Fusion. That means I can switch screens and run IE and log into the web site. When I'm on the road I have the MACBook Pro and the PC Laptop. If I need to access the Freightliner web site I have to fire up the PC to do so.

What is so difficult about having two browsers on a computer.

Why should anyone have to find a work-around. Because what is presently being using by some is not working. Rather simple I would think.

I guess my logic is weird, huh?

Not for those of us who dumped IE many years ago for exactly the same reasons.

Why drive a Chevy (IE) when, for the same price, you can drive a Cadillac (FireFox) or a Lincoln (Chrome)?

How's that for logic?

This all reminds me of an old Lucky Strike commercial. " I'd rather fight than switch "

I "was" a Camel man.(unfiltered)

Let us not start a war on which cigarette is better, or worse - that could end up blowing smoke.
