But on my iPhone too the new theme is SLOW. Only since I got my iPhone 4 (having previously had a 3G) had I bothered with the full slashdot (as opposed to the text only version which I can no longer find) as it was too slow to load. Having just tried this new version on my iPhone I can't believe how slow it is.
On a 1 year old macbook on RockMelt (which is just chrome really) => SLOW
On my 1 year old Toshiba laptop on Opera => SLOW
Oh dear :( Looks like I might be making a new text only version...
