I leave Ask Ubuntu and other sites open overnight - and today I got back and there were almost 300 questions in this bar:
I clicked on it, and it took 16 seconds to load all of them - which seems like a long time (for me) and it must be putting some load on the server (not much, but as each request is normally milliseconds...).
I seem to remember reading that the server renders the page (not an expert - not sure what this means) but it seems to me that the server is rendering the page with the first (oldest) new question, then the second and so on.
This means it is rendering 300 questions, and then showing every single one on the page - that page has 342 questions on it now. Normally there are 48.
Is there some way the server could limit the page size it sends to me - to speed up loading all these questions?
