We've been working behind the scenes over the past few days to speed up the site, and wanted to check in with our members to get your perceptions. Do you notice a difference?

 

Is HTF fast enough, too slow or about right?

 

Thanks for your feedback!

Didn't notice a difference, but then never considered it slow.

I'll pay attention. On the iPad, it was very slow.

On the iPhone, the mobile safari interface has been faster than the full website.

It's faster to load on my iPad 3.

The editor box is still erratic for me. I don't know if that's an iPad 3 issue or specific to HTF. But it can be unresponsive to text input, and suddenly catch up in a burst, leading to typos and auto-correct errors.

Seems slightly slower to me, using Firefox and Google Chrome browsers.

On my older home computer it's a bit slow.  BUT it *does* appear to run faster now.  Page load speed seems at least twice as fast.

Maybe that was why it wouldn't work, at all, for about 2 hours the other day.

I'll agree with that sentiment.

Always seemed like a fast-loading site to me.

I haven't noticed a speed change, but today, on the iPad, the preview for last unread post button is not working. It just opens the thread to the first page.

Yes, it still jumps to the first post. The preview doesn't happen, either.

Yes which is why being a bit slower doesn't matter, probably my internet connection when i posted the other day as now it's the same as usual, that is fast to load.

Interesting perspective. For me, HTF has been a noticeably slower websites. Noticeably longer load times the past 3-6 mo than other websites.

It seems improved now.

We found it slow ourselves. A lot had to do with the rapid move off Huddler and little time to really tune things. Our testing now show the site is about 50% faster. Hopefully we can do even better when the new version of IP.Board comes out later this year.

Peter, are you using Safari?

Yes, want me test it in Chrome?

 

EDIT - the preview feature works fine on the iPad with Chrome, though typing is slow.

Typing is faster, though. :)

We're not making any changes, but we have stopped some of the javascript resources that enable previews to load first (they were slowing down the site), so I'm not sure there's much we can do Peter.

I've noticed the HTF app for the iPad crashes a lot. Pretty much any time I go to Browse -> Blu-Ray -> then open a thread and read and return to Blu-Ray, it will freeze and crash, and I'll have to open it again to see other threads or folders. I see that there was an update today, so hopefully, those bugs are fixed; if not, it's a pretty big problem.
