Reviews

Slow, heavy third-party resources for nothing

It’s simply impossible for us to run this plugin on our website: it loads some 100 KB of external resources, including a duplicate copy of jQuery, even on pages where it does absolutely nothing. A cost of [url=http://www.webpagetest.org/result/150926_QC_K2Q/1/details/#request-overlay-69]some 1.4 seconds over a fast connection[/url] is something we cannot afford on our corporate website, we are forced to disable it.
