    I've been trialling the MobileMe service for the past few days now. Has anyone else noticed that the website interface is quite slow? The mail panel seems OK, but the contacts and calendar are quite slow to load, and the calendar itself seems quite "clunky", especially scrolling between weeks.

    I did try accessing at work, but the me.com website won't work with IE6 [​IMG]

    Yeah, MobileMe on the web has been slow.

    I am guessing Apple will have that kink worked out shortly
    as there are a huge amount of complaints about it.

    Interesting to hear that it will not work with IE6. I mean, the
    idea was for MobileMe to work on the Windows PC platform as well.

    Keep us posted on your experiences.

    IE6 is a dinosaur in the browser world...and actually IE7 isn't fully supported either given its 'issues'. If you can't install FireFox locally try running the portable version off a USB memory stick.

    The portable apps version of FireFox works ok, but it's quite a hassle if I just want to do a quick check on the me.com website.

    If Apple's plan was to open up more to the PC iPhone users with an online service, I'm surprised they're not fully supporting IE which most PC users will be using.

    If Apple allowed IE6 many of the features wouldn't work. IE6 is simply too old and should be replaced with IE7 as soon as possible.
