intensedebate performance impact? (2 posts)

    intensedebate looks great (esp. twitter/facebook integration), but typically javascript-based solutions (esp. is javascript is not loaded asynchronously) do have a performance-impact on page loading/ rendering.

    hence my question:
    * how many extra files (javascript and other) are loaded? how big are these? from how many sources are they loaded?

    and as a bonus:
    * quantcast-tracking (as in "behavioral marketing") seems to be included, can that be turned off?

    hmm, seems this question has been answered here:

    one page, 2 comments :
    intensedebate on : 591kb
    intensedebate off: 188kb

    the post is 6 months old though, any chance this has changed in the mean while?

    and apparently there are some pretty big problems server-side as well, so unless someone can confirm things have gotten better since, i'm not installing intensedebate on my blog ...
