Google slow at loading and poor scroling.

Google is so slow at loading and jerky when scrolling its getting to a point where I am looking for a better and more efficient search.

I have tried the PCA search bar but my McAfee doesn't show green ticks for safe sites or the WOT green circle am I missing some thing here. Shame as its faster and smoother than Google.

McAfee and WOT both work on Bing.

Havent tried Yahoo yet.

The fault is unlikely to lie with Google - it's more likely to be your browser or your internet connection.

What's your operating system, what's your browser? Have you run a speed test on your internet connection?

Have you tried going to Google on Internet Explorer, to compare speeds? If IE seems fine, then this suggests that Firefox is to blame.

I presume you have Google set as your home page on Firefox. Have you also got it set as home page on IE? If so, how does the speed of the two compare, when it comes to loading Google?

Next question: have you got a lot of Firefox add-ons and/or extra toolbars?
