Is MacRumors slow to load on Safari for anyone else?

    Running iOS 11.2 on an iPhone X and pages on this site seem to load mich slower than usual when running Safari.

    It takes the blue progress bar at the top of the screen an extra several seconds to finish loading once you go to this site, and will often jump to a different section of the page once the site fully loads. So, if you click on a thread and begin scrolling through it, the blue status bar will eventually “finish” several seconds later and shoot you to a different area of the thread.

    Just checking to see if it’s happening to everyone or if it’s just me. Thanks.

    Using any content blockers?

    Same issue here. No content blockers. Happens on iPhone and iPad. Happens on a fast Wi-Fi connection.

    Happened to me right after installing beta 2. It cleared up and started working properly again after a few hours.

    No blockers. Happens on fast LTE and WiFi connections. Not sure how to remedy the issue. Other sites load just fine.

    Try clearing website data? Turning off Safari iCloud?

    Initial loading is fine. Moving from page to page in a thread is ok. It appears to have loaded but the progress bar is only about 1/3 way across the screen. Any sort of scrolling is interrupted by some other content being loaded.

    Now that I notice it, it also happens on my win 10 machine running chrome. Load a new thread and it spins for about 45 seconds after it appears that the page is loaded.

    Sounds like a DNS issue. Probably some ad/scripts etc. are not able to be loaded.

    Does it work over cellular?

    Similar results at work and at home, although both are Spectrum service. Haven't tried cell yet.

    Give it a try if you can. If it works, you have your answer at least (though, not a fix)

    Happens at home on WiFi and at work on cell. Annoying because the page jumps once it finishes loading even if you scrolled down. The content loads normally.

    I'm not sure about that, as I only started seeing it right after installing 11.2 Beta 2.
    Also seeing it on other sites.

    Strange! :(
    I'm noticing lag in other apps so I thought the beta had something to do with it.

    In fact as I typed that response in Chrome on a windows 10 machine, the page scrolled up to the last read message, after the loading spinner stopped. Something is awry in MacRumors land

    I was seeing the same thing on my iPhone 8 with iOS 11.1 that last few days, but I just tested this morning and the issue seems to be gone.

    Is it fixed for others also?

    Still happening... Is loading as I type.

    Definitely not my phone, as it happens on my iPad.

    Also happens at home, at work, and on cellular.

    I wonder if it's scripts ads are loading, so it depends on what ads you are being served as to whether or not it happens...

    It takes forever to load pages on all my devices as well. Safari and both WiFi and LTE. My iPhone X isn’t as bad but it’s brutal on my 6 plus and iPad Air.

    I would say the loading issues started about a month ago. MR is the only site I’m experiencing the issue.

    Seems fine for me now. All devices are smooth and quick again.
