Firefox and Safari, using three different computers on 3 networks, Windows 8.1 on Ethernet, XP on Wifi and Newest Apple on Verizon.
ALL slow loading this sites pages. no issues with any other sites. Some days its a little better but never snappy fast, last week was terrible, just gave up.
Hope this helps, actually, as I am responding, the site is running almost frustrating slow and Im on my fastest network and favorite computer right now. (ps Im good with electronics, its my field)
Ps, (for the others) Windows new systems 8.1 and into the future are as secure as ever, Yes they maybe the target of attack because of how popular but dont fall into a false sense of security by using another browser, you need to keep any browser updated. I would encourage any new computer owner they are safe, even safest with Windows 8.1 and future versions. One smart idea would be to use Windows 8.1 and future versions for banking, then Firefox or others for everyday stuff like this or the other way around.
Right now the biggest security problem is with google, being so popular now across all platforms, including EVERY android phone out there
I like Firefox too ... but actually feel safer with 8.1 or make sure it is the very newest Firefox.
and if really worried about security ... the VAST majority of security issues are caused by people downloading viruses AND clicking on emails that they are fooled into opening. More or less, most issues are caused by the people themselves not by a hack breaking into your system.
