Slow Loading Pages and Impatient Waiting -- Workaround
With a typical dialup networking connection in place in our home systems, sometimes, even typing of Google.com, Internet Explorer would take long long while before focussing the textbox into the search textbox.
This would really make us feel impatient and tense as we launch Google only to initiate a spidering of a quick search. There are a bit of quick tidbits to workaround this problem.
- I think there was some PowerToy from Microsoft to prevent automatic images downloading and selectively displaying the images.
- Naviscope -- Quick and Personal Desktop Proxy Tool
- And I strongly feel the ESCape key to abort page loading the moment after the textbox loads and I can initiate the search operations.
