I think the problems people have with the downloading speed of sites made with iWeb has much more to do with .Mac's pokey speed than the admittedly large pages that iWeb generates. I cloned my .Mac website onto my free personal webspace on Earthlink and timed the download speeds of the two sites using a freshly resetted Safari (to prevent the cache from doing its thing.) Result? Earthlink often loaded the pages faster. One time, while .Mac took nearly thirty seconds for one page, Earthlink was done in 7 seconds. .Mac seems to be fluctuate from pokey to acceptable. Anybody else have luck comparing .Mac to other web hosting services?
