Instructables takes forever to load and is unusable to me Answered

Something has happened to the INstrcuctables site for me. It has basically become unusable. It is always loading, causes IE8 to "hang" or minimize by itself or otherwise behave badly. Buttons disappear from pages...

In general, it is suffering from some sort of general malaise. What has happened?

The usual advice is to clear your cache, but I would also suggest that you switch to FireFox.

Switching to Firefox seemed to help, but still a lot of functionality is acting strangely. For example, I cut and pasted this reply link and so far it seems to work, but when I try to reply to other comments, it will hang, blank out what I am typing or refuse to post my reply. If you get this, then the post obviously worked this time :)
