in reply to chatterbox causes heavy load? So why don't switch to IRC?

I made the suggestion before, but I think it worth repeating. As we already have an IFRAME used for the ad at the top of the screen, would it be a hugely provocative move to make the CB a IFRAME as well?.

Done this way, a click on the talk button would only need to refresh the cb, which should a reduced load on the server by not having to re-build the entire page with associated DB hits etc. ?

    I don't know what the support for iframes is like now but you could make it an optional user setting. I bet you would still lighten a lot of load.

      IFRAME is part of canonical HTML since 4.0 and supported by MSIE and Mozilla for years. Shouldn't be much of a problem methinks!

      Added bonus: the main page loads independent of the scatterbox stuff, which could improve the overall (subjective) experience. ++BrowserUk.
