I don't know if this is a Chow thing or not, but I've been noticing slightly slowish page loads lately and see things like Google Analytics and Facebook domains loading along with Chow pages when I look at the status bar at the bottom of my Firefox screen. At first I thought the slight delay was the tweet tabs but I've gotten rid of them with AdBlockerPlus.
The status bar appears to be new and related to the McAfee security (a new upgrade called Site Advisor?) provided through my cable company.
So...... is this stuff normal or something unique to Firefox or me, or........???????????
