    Couple of other things not mentioned,

    1) when the PB browser is halted loading CB, either the full site or the t.crackberry site, all functions of the browser are frozen, top swiping, tab switching, even when Javascript & flash are disabled.
    2) this also happens on Internet Explorer 8 on my desktop, all tabs are frozen while Crackberry is attempting to load some sort of element. Had to do a Task Manager shutdown this morning... locked up for minutes.

    Firefox & Chrome seem OK, although it is a bit laggy in Firefox, but useable.

    Bit of a disappointment, as I have been faithfully using my PB for Crackberry since purchase in April '11.

    Oh well, I'll check in Monday, hopefully there is some resolution.

    C'mon Kevin! Our voices are loud and clear. No question about it. Do we really those sidebar ads/stories?

    Current Status: i'm on pc & pb right now,,, pc cb page is snappy & render is good,,, new font looks good to my eye,,, page whiteness seems a little bright,,, i have forums.crackberry & t.crackberry open on pb,,, forums. page is not blazing fast but not super bad either,,, i'm getting checkerboarding only during fast scrolls w/ lots of images,(i.e.: i used my SEAWALLS thread as i know it'd be labor/ram intensive 'cuz there's lots of images,,, & yes this is a shamless plug,,, ),,, login on forums. page is still painfully slow as it was before new site upgrade,,, t.crackberry page is a fail,,, render is very bad,,, (not bashing,,, just saying to be as complete as possible),,, all i see on t.crackberry is a VERY small column on far left side,,, keep up the hard work guys,,, you'll get it...

    We've halted ads for PB devices across CB.
    We're working expressly on the forums atm.

    I clicked the link to this post from my Playbook email and it loaded relatively fast. Thanks for the continued hard work with this.

    Much better today! I gave up last night after extremely long load times and crashes. It's now very quick on my PB which is where I normally read it. Also works on my iMac (which is not my preferred computer). Will try later on Win 8 laptop.

    Wow without ads, it's flying on my pb. It might be faster than my desktop.

    @ALL Clear your PB caches might help a lot, we've made several changes to both css, js and page code - some removing years of abuse.

    Domain affected:
    t.crackberry.com and forums.crackberry.com

    On our PBs the speed is much improved though we've never managed to experience the full 40 second loads others have reported they have definitely been slow..

    Not as much was done on the main domain besides a media query to selectively load a background image and the removal of ads for PB devices.

    why is crackberry taking me to t.crackberry.com by default now? it is totally unusable right now. I have cleared cache and restarted pb. it has crashed every single time in the last 15 minutes.

    I posted yesterday that I couldn't get into the forums nor log in....now it is running perfectly and it let me log in. Very quick for me..I am on the regular website and typing this from the playbook.

    Also.. I definitely recommend the t.crackberry.com site on the PlayBook.

    We don't have the "sticky header" there... which is good thing when you're going to be using pinch to zoom. On the full site you'll zoom the header too, which is a bit odd. It also loads faster.

    Give that a go and let me know if you find it better!
    I was browsing this thread and agreeing with some of these comments, not all. I wasn't even aware there was a tablet CB site. Just checked it out and it is really fast. Thanks kevin for the heads up!

    Wow, CB is working again on my playbook, thanks for the quick response. I am finding the t.crackberry site faster than both the desktop version, and also the old CB desktop version. The new desktop version might be a bit slower than the old desktop, with more checkerboarding. The forums are blazing fast. Overall with the t.crackberry site I am running the faster I have ever seen on the playbook.

    Thanks CB team, whatever you did fixed things for me and my playbook. Home Page takes about 10 seconds to load, forum section about 12 seconds. And the link issue is fixed. It is really fast on my pc, almost instant loading. Great work. Like the new look.
