In exasperation, can I ask if I'm alone in finding the time that an Independent page takes to stabilise before one can scroll on it smoothly as being excessive? It was bad enough assembling its various plug-ins but now that it has to muster a left-side background advert that insists on staying central, anything up to 3 minutes now seems standard. I've been finding it a damn nuisance in recent weeks - and don't mention the invasive Vacheron Constantin watch ads alongside any FT article! I will not be buying one - Harrumph!!

I think the Indy is the worst of the lot, although at least you don't get the posh watch ads obscuring the text, as you sometimes do with the FT.

 

Edit: and while I'm on a rant, can I say how fed up I am with all these sites trying to open a page on Facebook for me? If I wanted Facebook open, I'm sure I could do it myself.

 

Double edit: in fact, what we all want, obviously, is the Macleans Clean Reading Mode - try the book review above and see what I mean!
