Is it just me, or has it changed?  It works very badly in Firefox 2.

Not just you!

I tried looking at the site earlier today and gave up as some of the text seems to be missing from (or not fitting into) the 'boxes' making it impossible to read.

It never was fast but now its taking forever to load. I have typed this reply whilst waiting for it to load and its still not finished.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Slower than a slow thing that's on a go slow! Looks pretty though, which was probably the deciding factor on the change.  ::-)
Also your now "opted in" for a direct mailing list, check your a/c settings.

Bet it was nice and quick when the development team demo'd it to the management using a locally cached version though.

Seems to be loading OK ... but showing MONDAY 8 July as the date ?!?!?!

... and it's out of date in the Team Kit section - showing HighRoad and Slipstream stuff instead of Columbia and Garmin Chipolata or whatever it is now  ;D ;D

I've given up on Wiggle.

The site has more and more bells and whistles that do nothing to enhance the buying experience - for example how about allowing user reviews.

The service has been equally rubbish - a recent order thay managed to deliver 5 of 7 items though it took them a week to tell me. I cancelled it, but they sent them to me anyway so I now have more threaded cartridges than a soda factory and of course to send them back would just be more hassle for me.
