for a very long time I've had issue with iceweasel taking too long to load. I 
thought it was just overloaded with cruft... so I started using Chrome. I am 
beginning to think it was partly cruft, and partly DNS.. I have changed 
my /etc/resolv.conf & interfaces files to show opendns servers FIRST. i even 
signed up for the free opendns account & added my static IP. SO FAR, 
everything seems fine.... I keep telling my wife to leave the browser open & 
minimized, yet she keeps closing it, and crying when it takes 5 seconds to 
load the home page.
