Do you know what your site looks like to someone who has blocked video and scripts from starting? I came to a blog today and this is what my first impression looked like. Not very appealing, is it?
I run an addon to my Chrome web browser. It blocks video and scripts (usually ads, but not always) from starting without me choosing to click them and then let them start. I do this, first because I find a lot of ads suck up my bandwidth and run up my Internet bill. Secondly, I do it because I don’t want to see a bunch of ads. Thirdly, a site with a lot of video and scripts will be slow to load – I don’t want to wait for a site to load then read the post and discover is was not worth waiting for.
