Performance Bleg


A question for y’all: how’s the performance of our site these days?  I use Firefox and Windows XP and my performance is sort of sluggish, but not wildly so.  Maybe 10 seconds to load the first few posts on the blog and another 10 or 15 seconds to finish loading the whole thing.  How about you?  Better?  Worse?  Is load time consistent or does it bounce around a lot?

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
