I'm using Safari and right now some pages are terribly slow, while others are quite quick.  Any other impressions from other browsers or is everyone having this issue?

It's just the servers, because I am using Firefox 3 right now and it is slow. So many people are online right now.

Opera 9.5 was the fastest for me, but you can't upload images with it so it's a bit useless.

It is the servers, I'm using Firefox 3 on my laptop, that has excellent speed on any other website, its a tad slow here. Its not a big deal, because this is their first full day as a completed website.

It looks pretty good on the forums area, but the sign up was horrible, and I could edit my profile.

At the moment GB.com is crazy busy thats why its slow, plus its a new site so there is gonna be technical issues that need fixing or improving. Overall though the site is working pretty damn well, can't complain at all.

It's running slow at the moment, certainly. But I doubt this isn't something that will be fixed in the near future.

Yeah it is just the site. In FF3 it is pretty slow. I haven't tried it yet and don't plan to in IE. Might make a go with it in Safari.

It doesn't matter what browser you use. It's the servers because GB never expected for this site to be this huge this quickly

This is the beta, so I'm guessing the site may run slow while they make further adjustments.  I'm using FF3 and yes it is running a little slow at times, but I am sure it will get better with time.

Yep I'm also running Safari on my Macbook. I'd say about 75% of the time it loads quickly, but the other 25% is slower than hell >. >

No browser will make a difference, give people time to get over the craze, it'll begin to settle down and people will get a quicker browsinging experience.
