What's better: slashdigglicious or share-this (4 posts)

    My blog CWF GameCast currently uses slashdigglicious. It works nicely and integrates well with the blog.

    Other day I saw Share This as another plugin and it looks good. Both of these plugins do the same thing, basically, it seems and I'm not sure which one is better for me.

    I have downloaded and installed Share This and took a peek at it. Seems easy enough to integrate but is of course different to what I'm used to.

    Any help I can receive is greatly appreciated. I bet some of you have used both or feel really strong about one of them.

    Thanks!

    I found Share This really slows down my website by about 5-7 secs for a refresh - don't know why, maybe cos it's talking to the sharethis site.

    slashdigglicious has no such delays of course

    Thanks for the heads up. Not that 5-7 seconds is that slow in the scheme of things but I don't think I want my blog slowing down at all if I can help it.

    I really am loving slashdigglicious but I have seen Share This all over the place and friends have said they like it too. Of course, those same friends never heard of or used slashdigglicious.

    There is some load time with the ShareThis button, but it occurs after all other elements of the DOM has loaded. The total amount of data transferred is around 6k, which is normally perceived to be 1.5 seconds. Additional loading does occur after click of the ShareThis button.

    I'd be happy to answer any additional questions about ShareThis.
