    how can I get mturk pages to load faster? they load a lot slower than they used to and sometimes they just sit there loading forever. they never used to do either of those things. it's making it hard to multitab.

    it takes 6-7 seconds for a hit to load. that makes a lot of batches not profitable.

    edit: I got the page load time down to 3-4 seconds by removing all extensions, closing all browser windows except the 1 I'm turking in, and closing all tabs except the 1's I'm turking in which was 2 tabs. and deleting the browser history, and closing and reopening chrome. but 3-4 seconds should have been immediate, so I don't know how to fix it.

    Omg - if I could give that 20 hearts I would. My fave musician was James Browns sax player... Maceo Parker. I can't even tell you how many friends I've dragged to his concerts.

    He's my absolute favorite - you can't not dance the whole time :)
