Hopefully not, I'd rather get real fixes than support for a browser … Hopefully not, I'd rather get real fixes than support for a browser everyone with any common sense stopped using 10 years ago.

As soon as i click on a thread/deal it virtually grinds to a halt,will say 4 items remaining d/loading pics etc etc i think the massive avatars slow it down,then a script error appears and AOL says it's not responding.

True though.
Can you not try firefox or google chrome? I know its not a proper solution but you would find them much better with any site not just this one.

aol is horrible i still have nightmares about it from many many years ago, go with chrome or firefox (chrome is yummier)

Is this a joke thread?!

Ditch the AOL browser. It was fine donkeys years ago but for speed, go for Chrome, and for the best all round browser, Firefox.

The point is also why should i have to d/load a different browser just to use this site when it's fine everywhere else.

When i stay at my OH's i use FF there if i don't take my netbook,i don't like other browsers i've tried them,i like what i like,as i say i've had to use IE since last week and it drives me nuts,i don't need any more speed or fancy add on's i LIKE my AOL browser,i can see instantly when i have email without all the crap at the top of the pages you get on other browsers.

I don't use Facebook,MSN,Youtube,i use my PC to look on HUKD and shopping sites that's it,i don't need any more speed,you blokes probably do to d/load porn etc,i'm quite happy with the speed on AOL as i only use it for generally browsing Ebay etc i'm happy witn AOL and i want to be able to use it on HUKD and i can't arghhhhh

I like looking at my bright blue page on AOL and not this dreary IE page and i like how AOL lights up red when i have email lol


It's all well and good mocking me but the simple fact is i can use my AOL browser everywhere else but here and that's not on.

I have the same thing with with this site on Firefox and IE8. I now use Chrome just for HUKD. Every other site is fine with IE8 and Firefox, so it is this site that is slow for some reason.

My OH can't use FF on his netbook either,there are no login buttons or custom tab.

SO there'd be no guarantee that would work even if i d/loaded it,not that i'm going to but you know what i mean!

Then the devs, as much as they are horrifically amateurish and a joke, have done you a massive favour. Seriously, AOL?! It's a horror show. The fact that other sites work is just down to luck - NO ONE is designing websites with AOLs browser in mind.

brb installing MSN Explorer (Remember that?!)

Your argument would be perfectly valid if you weren't using the most rediculous browser in the history of the internetz (apart from msn)

Seriously, I like to blame the hukd devs for literally everything bad in my life :P but they are just unlucky that they were the first to break an old pointless browser. Plenty more sites will break so get used to it.

you really expect the developers to support a browser that wnt out of general use 10 years ago? It was horrible then so god knows what it is like now.

switch to firefox, not IE.

Why does every other site support AOL then,i don't like FF i like my AOL browser.

Regardless of the fact some people don't like it,it works EVERYWHERE else bar here,that's the point.

If people can only say change browsers,please don't comment,i'm asking the people who run the site a question.

TBH my firefox works fine with this site!
I do see what you are saying I to did like AOL software,but times have moved on and AOL has not.

Your question has been answered by the replies - no developer is going to support AOL browser - you MAY get lucky and it is fixed by something else, but even then it is going to be down to luck if other sites work.

Its an atrocious piece of software, and probably full of security holes by now too.

I never realised people used that browser out of choice (or that anyone even still used it XD)

google chrome all the way,much quicker than IE
