Default Site is SLOW

I am getting very tired of having to wait 10 to 15 seconds for pages to load, this appears to be due to long scripts from advertising. It seems every time I click on a new thread, etc., I have to wait 10 to 15 seconds before I get the results.

I use AdBlock and never see an advert, and have no loading problems.
I know sites need to generate income from advertisers, and where sites maintain a reasonable loading speed, I will turn it off.
I keep it on for this site, as the add loading time detracts from navigation.

Pages are loading very fast with Safari - under a second.

Firefox with Adblock Plus here...instant loading (without ads).

Recently I switched browers from Mozilla Firefox to Chrome.
Just had all my favorites exported to Chrome.
Transition was easy. Eliminated many unwanted pop ups and phishers/scammers and phony web threats.

I switched from Firefox to Google Chrome about five years ago. Very convenient, when I bought a new computer and logged in, my browser, bookmarks and all the other details popped up. Bought a chrome book for my wife, logged in, and everything came up just like our main computer. I also use Adblock and Popup Blocker, I haven't seen an ad in years on this site. I only have 10 mpbs with Century Link and it works fine.

Google Chrome Web Browser

Ad-Blocker Pro - Chrome Web Store

Pop up blocker for Chrome™ - Poper Blocker - Chrome Web Store

Using Edge, much faster than IE 11......no problems with pages loading.
