Hmm...I'm on an iMac 700mhz, and I just checked it out in Safari. Doesn't lag me one bit

That sad excuse of a poster is probably just sucking your computer's will to live.

Obviously no problems with Safari... apparently Safari v73 (don't know about other versions) can only play one animated GIF at a time.

I think every version has only been able to play one animated GIF at a time.

Camino's fine too. Why did you whine in that thread? It just gave him ammunition.
[email protected] is good for you.

Technically, there is no way that using special characters can slow down your comp any more than common characters.

And on my blue G3/350, both IE and Safari have no trouble at all with it.

Most likely there was a rotating banner ad on the page that used dumb JavaScript or something, and is now gone.
