I didn't see a good place to ask this, so here it sits.
When I bring up my home page in FF, with iGoogle on it, some apps like Date and Time, and the Hamsters are very slow to load. They'll usually show up eventually, if I just wait patiently.
But, like one vulture said to the other, "Patience hell, I want to kill something!".
I tried pulling up the same page on I.E.8 but it too was slow on those apps, but it finally displayed everything.
