Originally posted by Strike Hosting Already stated. I am going to try to do something about that, possibly an image preloader.
An image preloader won't help you here (or ever). The load time is the same whether you load the images before anything displays or after. If anything a preloader will cause the page to load slower.
Your best bet to speed it up is to ditch the tables and cut down on the images (a lot of your images with text could simply be changed to text with background images.
So your saying text with background images? Ummm, correct me if I'm wrong, but that would still require an image.
About the preloader: If I get any more complaints about speed, I will have to have an into page. I know, they are not good in any situation, especially for a web host -- but I don't see any other options.
