Component Store Really Slow For Everyone?

Hi all

I'm wondering if the component store is really slow for everyone? I just timed a few basic navigation operations:

Order By 'Fresh' - 14.1 seconds
Change page - 8.1 seconds
Browse to component detail - 6 seconds

On this occasion 'Order By' took 14 seconds, but at times it feels more like 30 seconds.

So am I the only one?

    Hey Adrian,

    Unfortunately you're not the only one. The component store website is way too slow and needs some serious optimization. The good news is that we have a plan to fix it, which we will be able to start on in about a week, once some other tasks get done.

    Check back in about two weeks, hopefully things will be much better!

    @nat Thanks for the reply, thats great to hear! I've become addicted to checking the store every day incase something cool has popped up or been updated. Would be great to get a notification if something new is added.

    Slow ... and fatal !

    Try to add "android support v4": 80% chances to kill visual studio 2012 without warning when the button "add to project" is clicked !!

    Maybe related to TFS, don't know.
