Noticed the browser was running a little slow this morning, so I took a look into the code and found something kind of strange. Was there a new process added in the last update that they didn’t tell us about? As near as I can tell, something in the code seems to be using my system resources to translate a bit of ancient Mayan. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

That’s odd. I think I’ve pinned down the problem, but it’s nothing new that they’ve added. It seems to be a set of instructions that’ve been in the code since they created the browser. Can’t seem to find a way to stop it, either. I’d spend more time on this, but the weather’s gone awfully terrible all of a sudden. I swear I just heard the roar of a tornado or something. I’ll be back later.

HAD TO REBOOT AND DOWNLOAD ANOTHER BROWSER JUST TO POST THIS! All my tabs suddenly closed the screen went totally black except for two words: “SAVE YOURSELF”. What’s that supposed to mean?
Hope you guys find a fix soon. Have to log out for a while. My wife’s screaming about something downstairs.

Don’t wear this shirt: if you’re still using IE6. Also? WHY MUST YOU CONTINUE HURTING THE INTERNET?
This shirt tells the world: “Oh, no! My browser’s really slow! Go, go, Mozilla!”
