I removed the links to ICQ, AIM, Yahoo Messenger and MSN that were shown underneath each post.

I did some analyzing of the speed that each element loads in the page, and these links cause major delays, often delaying the displaying of the page up to 2-5 seconds.

This info is still in the user's profile though.

2-5 seconds ain't that bad.

It's when people use flash loading apps that I get pissed ...
Or flash banners.

Basically anything that has to load before it'll display a website is annoying and moving banners are shite anyways.

I always that banners should be simple and yet catchy so that the viewer who probably only skims over the banners briefly for maybe a split second remembers it in there head automatically without having to watch it for however long it takes for moving banners/ images to load each step.

Whatever.

eZ man !

But if you think it helps then ...

Opera goes around since it can be set to load any page html code first and then starts loading up formatting, bitmaps, flash etc.

it can make the page looking messy at first since it has to load formatting second to the actual table of the html but hey

no optimization for pages made entirely in flash
