Talktalk home page Slowing system

Had lots of problems with the Talktalk home page particularly using Safari on Mac mini last night (21st August) It appears the home page is downloading so many adverts etc that it slows the whole system down - making moving to other web pages slow. 

If I used google as home page my system runs fast and smooth - any other people experiencing the same?

Hi

 

Is this also slow with another browser.

 

Testing here in Chrome, not seeing any specific slowdown.

 

Adds unfortunately are a revenue stream for most websites these days.

 

Thanks

You are right - chrome is much faster.

 

However with Safari I often get the "apple spinning wheel" moving from the Talktalk home page to another site - I assume waiting for the adverts to finish.

 

Not a big problem as I can change the "home page" - but just thought I would let you know the problem.

Hi

 

Thanks for the info.

 

With Chrome you can choose add ons to help block adds etc.  Ghostery is working for me and does block a lot of adds.

 

Thanks
