It's pretty fast here, so I don't know about that. As for looking like
the screenshot, I'd compare the same page opened in links and a GUI
browser. The /. homepage doesn't actually look that much different to
me, at least in terms of images shown. The links rendition is
certainly pretty ugly, but I suspect that this is due to the fact
that /. makes heavy use of CSS for styling, which links doesn't handle
very well (some of the CSS seems to actually be dumped to the page as
text). I also tried the Yahoo home page; the larger images seem to be
there, but the general page layout is once again different. If you're
really getting strange results, try posting screenshots somewhere, and
we'll take a look.
