Slower with new design?
I've seen a number of posts that say the new design seems to work faster for them. I wonder if I'm the only one who is experiencing a slow-down?
Admittedly, I'm using Safari on an old Powerbook, so I'm in a small minority of people who should have upgraded to a newer, faster computer.
But the old design seemed snappier, even on this old hardware. I'm just curious if anyone else is seeing the same thing?
Okay, to be more specific: the animations take several seconds to run. For instance, drawing the graph of my points over the last few days goes slowly enough that some of the lines connecting the points actually get skipped.
And the buttons, e.g. "continue" don't work with a regular quick mouse-click. I have to click slowly, or hold down the mouse button for a second, in order for the click to work.
And each time I switch to a new sentence in a lesson, there's 1) an animation as the words fade-in, and 2) the spoken words that start playing. This combination can take up to five seconds to get going.
Does anyone else see this? Do you think it's more likely to be due to:
1) the browser?
2) the hardware?
3) the version of a plugin like flash or java?
Thanks for any thoughts!
