Hi,

I'm working on a new website for one of my clients. I'm using a lot of javascript and also Cufon for the navigation menu. The page loads fine in Firefox, but in Internet Explorer, it is very slow. It takes more then 8 seconds the page is fully loaded. The URL is Link to website

Can someone help me where this slowing down happens for Internet Explorer?

Move the

stuff to the bottom of the page

It loads ok but really the above takes the most time

Hi,

I did that, it's maybe an improvement, but still slow. The main picture at the top loads also very slow.

Probably move all the Javascript code at the end of html code.

Nah, just the external one.

You can even defer the loading of the external script till after the page has loaded

your image is far too large for a web page
your site load time is slow in IE8 too

hoofding1.jpg is 160KB and can easily be reduced to 40kb and still look good

apart from that you have tons of JavaScript which doesn't help (almost 1MB in total)

so your problem is not IE7 - your page size is almost 1.2MB so you do the math

I would suggest you start from scratch and try to optimize that page as much as possible without any fancy stuff and try to keep it below 300KB in total

Hope that helps

I installed minify and my page is now 329406 bytes. But still it has trouble loading fast for some reason.

even 300kb is considered to be too "large" for a web page
your logo is 40kb and it could be reduced to 6kb and that first image I mentioned hasn't been resized. check your other images and optimize them as much as possible

your cufon script is run on a different domain and your page is waiting for it to finish processing - move cufon script just above the closing body tag

The problem is still there but the page load speed is improved.
