miroguide is an enormous monster. Scrolling takes forever, every refresh rakes about 2-3 seconds and CPU usage jumps to 100%. Tried in Miro 3.5, 4.03 and Firefox 5, 6 -- same problem everywhere.
Linux, nvidia drivers.

This has nothing to do with your operating system, and if it were your graphics drivers it would probably happen with other websites too.

I have exactly the same problem, tried in the Miro browser, and then inside Firefox to see if the Miro web browser was inefficient. It's not, but the web site appears to be.

I haven't tried another browser, but I doubt another one could make that huge of a difference. I've tried on both Windows XP (32-bit SP3) and Ubuntu 11.04 using Miro guide and Firefox.

Hopefully they can either find a way to make the website coding (which assumably is the problem) more efficient or whatever else could be slowing it down so much.

kind of encouraging to hear that I'm not that unique. Just wanted to add that I never had this problem before the recent redesign of the miroguide website.

Same here. Hopefully they figure out a way to fix it, or redesign it back to something simpler that doesn't lag.

I have the same problem. I actually liked the previous design better.
