I've been looking at the usage figures for the site in 2014 and I see that it breaks down like this:
- Windows PCs 52%
- Apple Macs 8%
- Mobile devices 19% (half iPhone, half Android)
- Apple iPad 13%
- Other tablets 5%
Modern Windows and Macs seem to have no problem with the UK Free TV, but there seemed to be a problem on mobile devices which have limited memory and CPU power
For this reason, I have modified the comments system show less comments per page, and also require a click to show the comments.
Initial testing seems to show that the site loads much faster for all classes of device and is more-or-less instant on mobile devices.
If you have any comments, please leave them below: after clicking "show comments".
