So Slow

I have someone possibly related to my line who has shared their tree with me.. they have over 9000 people on it! It takes absolutely ages to move around on it. :-(

It's slower than a wet week!

I don't add to my GR tree any more, it's too frustrating.

I view other people's trees, but only when I have a few hours to spare :-(

Those green lines that appear drive me crazy!!!

It's NOT my computer, I've looked at trees using a different computer.

Does anyone else find it frustratingly slow to move around a tree,,, wouldn't it be easier with scroll bars on the page instead of direction arrows?
