Granted today's connection is quite slow but loading my commonly visited sites like my blog, petaling street.org, 5xmom, liewcf etc all loads with tolerable speed.
However one HongKiat.com took a long time to load. Looking at the bottom of the browser I can see that it's the ads that slows the site down. The header has already loaded meaning the browser has already connected to the website and completely downloaded the initial html code.
But since the ads have not loaded all I see is the header.
BuySellAds.com seems to be holding back the website in addition to a host of other ads such as tribalfusion.com. Perhaps it's just my connection.
Anyway after a full 2 minutes the website finally loaded. That's an eternity for me :)
