The site for the Sony Reader used to load quickly. Recently they did a revamp and clogged it all to hell with Flash. I had to go there today to find out a two-second bit of information: What dictionaries were in the Sony Reader.
I had to wait forever for this crap Flash to load first!
Count the spinning wheels! And those are only the ones on-screen. There’s a bunch more off-screen too!
(Don’t bother trying this on your iPhone. Sony might have an iPhone-friendly version of the site.)
My crap desktop PC is old. A 1.6GHz Celeron. But still — the CPU in the iPad is a 1GHz A4. How much of that CPU do you want to see wasted on some insane web designer’s Flash wanking?
Kill off Flash, Apple. And good riddance to it!
