The extremely annoying Corner
Tom Smith

The popular Corner destination at the National Review website has started running some API that makes the site slow or makes it crash altogether. Actually, it has always been kinda slow, but it has gotten worse. This is happening from both my home and work computer, so it must be something at the site.  Possibly it's something that conflicts with Flash, as sometimes it causes Flash to crash. Maybe they are using the same people that designed Mitt's GOTV software. Or maybe it's a conflict with Chrome? The all seeing eye probably doesn't like NRO.

I've noticed this as well, using win 7 and debian linux (Chrome on both systems). No crashes but incredibly slow load times.
Can't be good for business.

Yes! Good to hear someone else is having problems with the site. It's been very slow loading for me for quite a while.

I'd thought it was because my computer is still using Windows XP. Or that it was a Firefox or IE problem.

Try the print page version:

It bypasses a lot of the junk.

Thanks, Unknown commenter! That's perfect!

I'm using IE, and The Corner has been unreadable for about a week or two. Generally, I cannot view about 90% of the posts beyond the first one or two, if that.
