    The first suggestion, Web Page Analyzer, is too ironic considering all the crap that MakeUseOf keeps loading onto its pages that has slowed it down to a crawl. It used to be great visiting this website. Used to do it every day. Now I dread it and all the time I have to wait for all the drek to load before I can actually read the content. There are many, many, many times I don't click a link to an article that piques my interest just because I know I'll have to sit through this awful page load time. Kind of shooting yourself in the foot there, eh?
