Funny Internet Explorer Glitch - Waiting for About:Blank

Waiting for About:Blank

About:Blank is the address in many browsers for a navigation placeholder page. It is normally 100% blank, as the name would suggest. However, some browsers may have some features to assist users in navigation, such as the “You’ve opened a new tab!” page.

At any rate, you shouldn’t have to wait for a “blank” page, and it definitely should not take over 30 seconds to come up, which is exactly what happened here.

    My Win7 computer was typically taking 15-30 secs to register the beginning of a google search and to load the entire page and/or to go back to a previously viewed page. I simply removed the google toolbar and now my pages load instantly back and forth. Hopefully, this will help those similarly affected.
