I had been blaming Firefox for just being slow... but today I had some slowness in firefox with multiple tabs open, and when I closed the HotHardware tab... everything picked back up.
I re-opened tabs and was able to recreate the slowness over time, and tried closing tabs for other website, but it didn't fix the slowness; only when I close HH does it speed back up.
There appears to be some sort of a memory leak occurring, and I think it is being caused by the ads...
I also accept that it is possible, the problem is just with the computer i'm on. But I am curious if other users have experienced this?
I'll continue monitoring and testing... might even try to get a good packet capture to pin this down...

My first question is, why are you using Firefox?! Use Chrome! Otherwise, test on different PCs, see what happens.
Why do you people use these really weird browsers? Google Chrome is amazing over here!
Why don't you use chrome?
