    I was browsing a random dealer site today and from start to finish I had the worst experience. The site had more pop-ups, rollovers, slide-ins and whizzbangs than I can handle. Once the page has finished loading, I prefer that it stay that way. I don't need constant pop-ups and dynamic content to engage me - I'm there to see the vehicle. Also on the SRP, vendor integrations all have to add their badge and it just creates a hideous experience where the last thing I see is the price of the vehicle.

    Why is this still happening? This is bad for everyone.
    The page perpetually loads for over a minute if you're a new visitor.
    Ghostery almost had a heart attack trying to track all these scripts.

    Tried browsing their site using Chrome's internet speed throttler - set it to a slower rural internet speed and you cannot even browse the site.

    Is that a DealerOn site? One thing is for sure: we know what that Internet Manager gets paid on.

    fusionZONE Automotive.
    Their service page also looks like a tornado ripped through it.
    I just don't understand.

    I also am getting the impression fusionZONE doesn't like Safari. Good thing nobody uses Macs or iPhones anymore!
