Zillow Advice: Buying Process - Why is this site so slow? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-this-site-so-slow/398493/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Zillow did a site revision ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-this-site-so-slow/398493/ Zillow did a site revision last night, and the site seems to be accessed and pages generated a lot faster to me today.<br/><br/>Is it still slow for you?<br/> Thu, 12 May 2011 16:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-this-site-so-slow/398493/ 2011-05-12T16:09:00Z Make sure you don't have ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-this-site-so-slow/398493/ Make sure you don't have too many other programs open so that all your RAM is available for your browser.<br/><br/>Make sure at at least 50% of your hard drive is "empty" for page swaps and cache, and that it has recently been defragmented.&nbsp; Still the access speed of the Hard Drive is critical and notebook connections are always slower due to that.<br/><br/>Turn off ALL "automatic updates" as those will take you to other sites and waste substantial time without your permission.<br/><br/>Then to speed up the page loads on this site, turn off all the advertisements by using the FireFox browser and loading the "add-on" -- "Adblock Plus".&nbsp; Don't subscribe to any filters, just create the filters on the fly as the advertisements that you don't want show up.<br/><br/>You may also want to check settings on any virus software you are using as that slows all page loads down if it is checking every page load before allowing it to load and before allowing it to run any scripts.
