That may be happening, but is it the software itself (which partly it
probably is), or is it the web pages themselves?  I mean on some of
these sites, why put in so much java/flash/whatever type crap and make
them so interactive?  I know we have cable/dsl modems more than ever
now, and the bandwidth part might not be as much of a problem, but the
software hasn't caught up to handle this stuff without occassionally
locking them up or freezing them or something.
