When you navigate using the "back" arrow button you may be loading a page (or part of a page) that has been cached locally on your computer. When you click on a button or link to go to a new page, it has to make the request to the server, load the page and then return the page to you. That's why it takes longer. Those are the response times that we are interested in.
When I hit the "back" arrow button on my browser to return to previous page it is immediate!
When clicking into a new page, forum or topic there is a slight lag time (3-5 seconds or so...) but it is overall much faster. I am not going to complain about this lag time but it was instantaneous in the past. Previewing a reply is taking about this same 3-5 seconds (whereas it used to be instant.)
Please don't take this as complaining... just feedback... It is a great improvement!
Much easier to navigate this website now.
Great feedback. All info is helpful!
