I've seen over the past few months that Google has gotten quite a bit slower 
to load on every system.  The "bucky ball" on 9/4 rendered my ancient Toshiba 
laptop unusable.  I don't think it was Flash, however.  My Toshiba doesn't 
have a flash player installed.  This may have been rendered using Javascript.  
Frankly, I gave up on trying to decipher the source code for the Google home 

The lack of consideration for lower speed devices by web designers is very 
frustrating.  It is not simply thin clients that get hosed, it is every 
sub-1ghz processor that is hammered.  Where, oh where, are the W3C compliant  
web sites?
