Dear Monks, I spent considerable time trying to figure out why the following code works fast on some sites and very slow on others. All sites are equally fast in Firefox.
my $start_page = 'https://www.yahoo.com';#fast
#$start_page = 'https://github.com'; #fast
#$start_page = 'https://metacpan.org'; #fast
my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new()->get( $start_page );
Replacing WWW::Mechanize with WWW::Mechanize::Firefox corrects the problem. However requires Firefox I am trying to avoid. I attempted to analyze 'get' request in Firefox using Tamper Data but could not figure out what is the difference.
At this point I kindly request your wisdom. Please be specific as much as posiible - I am not an expert in programming in general and in perl specifically.
Thank you in advance.
