Does the VFNZ website drive anybody else nuts with its super slow scrolling and refresh rate that use 100% of your CPU when scrolling down the page.
It always seems to be sites that have lots of little squares or dots as a background that do this,whats up with this ?,do web developers think this is classy or something,if I owned a company and a web developer designed a site like this for me,I would be telling them they need to go and find a job that their good at.

I have absolutely no problems browsing Vodafone's web site from my home computer but it constantly crashes the browser on my computer at work.

Hi Gerry,

Could you share your hardware spec, platform/OS, and browser details?

Cheers,

Dan.

I find it responsive... Scrolling works ok. It could be your drivers, or an old version of Flash Player, or an over zealous antispyware program on your PC.

Hey Dan.
Core duo 1.83,2 gig ram,nvidia quadro FX350M,XP sp2,IE version 6.0.2900.2180
By browser details,you don't mean all the advanced setting details?
Couldn't see pc specs being a problem as it runs Solidworks and games fine ?

Mauricio,I will have a check on the things you suggested,stange how it only effects a couple of websites though.

Thanks Gerry,

That's great, I wasn't meaning all the advanced details/settings :)

What other sites display the same problem? I'd like to see if I could find something they might have in common that's causing this problem.

Does the site load fast initially? i.e. before you start to scroll?

This forum thread has a few ideas/possible solutions.

Keep us posted!


Dan.

Hey Dan,sorry for they belated reply but have been without internet for a week due to some unexplained Telstra fault.

I can't remember the other sites which had the same problem as the VF one,all I do remember is they had tiny little squares or dot patterns on the webpages just like the VF one,its no biggie really as I only visit it once every couple of weeks to top up,I was really only interested to see if anyone else had noticed it,but thanks a bunch for your interest,I will see if it does the same on my new pc when it arrives.

Hi Gerry,

No worries!

The Vodafone site does use sIFR (replacement of webtext with Flash text), and I've sometimes found that scrolling gets jerky on sites with Flash-intensive pages, although the Vodafone site scrolls fine for me.

Hmmm.

Cheers,

Dan.
