PCAdvisor website and Google Chrome browser

  spuds 09:48 AM 08 Apr 13

Finding that from past experiences, Google Chrome appears to be the best website browser for my use on the PCA website, I am now finding that a few problems have appeared over recent days. And I wonder if anyone else is having a similar problem?.

Trying to open the PCA website with Google Chrome, now leads me to more 'waiting for' or 'server overload' error messages, with the slow or failure for connection. Trying this morning with Firefox and I got into the PCA website fairly easily, but using Chrome, the dreaded 'waiting for' and 'server overload' appears.

As anyone an answer to this. Would add that the cache of both browsers are cleaned on a regular basis. Using Windows XP.

Since posting the above, another error message as now appeared in the Firefox browser.

A Script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: http://ajax.googleleapis.com/ajax/libs/query/1.6.3/query.min.js:2

The message also gices a tick box 'Don't ask me ahain' also 'Continue or Stop Script'.

This appears to be a Google Chrome message, now in a Firefox browser?.

Had a message just now that the Tomcat server had problems with a java applet in IE. Refreshed and back in. So could be something to do with that?

spuds I was having the "script on this page''''''"warning a couple of weeks ago and posted something about it then. The web page would freeze for about 30secs. An update to chrome v 26.0.14100.43 seemed to cure the problem and all ahs been well since.

Thanks guys, I had some PCA server overload messages in recent days, so possibly that. All other sites seem okay.

Got things to do, so I will run a few anti's to see if anything from the 'redirection' link shows up, while I am getting on with other things?.

As I said earlier, don't use the above link. I used it, and it took me to where I may have not wanted to go!.

Will tick as resolved.

Just checked the version of Google Chrome, and it as automatically updated to 26.0.1410.43m, which apparently is the latest version.

Only took me to: Below are sponsored listings for goods and services related to: googleleapis.com

But to your point about PCA I use IE 9 and particularly at the weekend I will get some sort of error and I no longer try to access the site from my phone as it loads so slowly (desktop version) of very limited site (mobile version)

I wonder why pca does not put at the top of the page "this site works best with the chrome browser" As the pages open instantly with chrome whereas IE & FF are frusrating slow on the PCA site

There's np point in PCA putting header messages or anything else, because it would appear this website as different ways depending on the devices used. Some people say stop java, others say not, and the circle continues.

After a number of expeiments,I found that Google Chrome was the 'best' for this website, followed on by Firefox then possibly Internet Explorer. But even Google Chrome is now becoming problematic, as perhaps this posting as shown.

I don't have any problems with other websites on a daily basis, except my bank, which for some reason, which I am still trying to found out,doesn't like Chrome or Firefox. Even the banks solution page, only offers help for IE, and not the two others.
