Javascript/browser? very slow on my computer!!

Hi, Hope this is the right forum to ask in.

Anyway in IE I go to this site and I click on computing on the left hand
menu and it takes from about 6 to 15 seconds to open the submenu.
I then click on "desktop PC's" and it takes 14 seconds to open that menu.
(normally about 14 seconds for the first menu, I guess I just 'got lucky'
last time when it opened in a *mere* 6 seconds.

However I then had the bright idea of trying a different browser, Mozilla
Firefox and I got much better results. It took only about 2-3 seconds to
open
each menu, not lightening fast I admit but atleast useable unlike the
unbearable
slow Internet Explorer operation.

Actually futher investigation reveals it may not just java script or the
bits
which I think are javascript which runs slow (I onlly though it was
javescript
because it said 'javascript void()' or similar in the bottom barof the
browser
which indicates what it is doing so that maybe a red herring, it now seems
IE may just be slower at eveything.
For example
Clicking on 'specification' or 'key features' has similar 15 second against
2-3 seconds in the respective browsers.

http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/stor...m=19&sm=5&tm=1

Then again I tried another slow page in IE, which turned out to be miles
slower
in Firefox, so I am rather confused!!

http://home.skysports.com/optastats....+United&cpid=8

Yep that page is painfully slow in Firefox and also the graphics are a bit
screwed up,
it also reloads the page unnecessarilly.

Help!!!!!!!!

Just to add to the confussion I have the full google toolbar on IE but just
a small google
serachbox on Firefox. (wondered if it might be related to that but probably
another read herring.
My computer is pretty old, Cyrix MII 300, 128meg ram IE 6.0, Firefox 1.0.4

So its a pretty simple problem really ;O) no doubt you wise owls can sort it
out ;;O)

Most likely the site has a slow server and the browsers are using cached
data differently.

It indicates only that whoever coded the page is clueless. It doesn't
work at all if JavaScript is disabled.

No, the problems are many and varied - attempting to validate the HTML
generates hundreds of errors. Many are trivial, but some aren't:

'Line 1794 column 95: element "SPACER" undefined"
...=122 class=wh-level1BottomGap ><spacer></td></tr>'
Send them an e-mail describing how crap you found the site and that you
were going to purchase 100 PCs from them - but since their site shows
them to be technical idiots you'll now go elsewhere.

Please snip replies. Also, what Albert did is called "cross-posting", which
allows the OP to address the question to more than one appropriate newsgroup and
is perfectly acceptable, within reason. "Multi-posting" is posting the same
message to different NGs as individual messages. The advantage of cross-posting
is that once it's been read in one group, it's marked "Read" in all groups.
Also, all answers appear in all groups (usually) and thus there's less repeating
of answers.

This post was not multi-posted, it was cross-posted. Cross-posting is
100% better than multi-posting and cross-posting is generally accepted
whereas multi-posting is frowned upon.

I am actually going to the store to try and get a refund of an item on
My reciept which I didn't want (product warrenty), I will also have
to return another TV to them which was faulty out of the box.

I was actually going to buy a PC from them but obviously now thats
a worrying though.
Unfortunately they have a virtual monoloply in such good in the UK
so they can staff themselves with idiots and crooks.
Hopefull someone will burn down all their stores someday.
