topix web site is crap. Keeps hanging, freezing up, not responding. Adds keep popping up without clicking on them.
topix is going down the toilet fast.

I've checked topix threads and stories on website performance sites where page load time and speed are tested. Topix & Huffingtom post are always slow and fail in managing scripts or add software.

Cut and paste the web address or topix thread you want to read then test it on a webpage performance site. Many are free. They'll give the page a report card. No matter what site I've used they all say that the script software or code is what slows down their page. And script or java script is frequently used for ad software since they are interactive or have video.

One trick I've learned is always stop a video which will increase speed a little bit. I'd visit the site more often but using topix and others are like using dial-up in the 1990s.

If you access it from your smartphone, it runs MUCH faster.

I've tried Mozilla Firefox and it worked speeding up topix and other sites with a lot of scripts. Still twitchy but much faster. Even reduced the glitchyness of windows 8.
