Well, I really cannot go to bed now, I'm too curious to know what is causing this |
It's actually not the cookie but just me being logged in. I renamed the cookie "newsiteuser" on my computer. This results in the server not being able to get my username and password. The page is a LOT faster this way and I am definitely not logged in (or at least not completely) since I do see the username and password fields on top of the page.
Update: I just did another test deleting everything but the newsiteuser cookie - still slow. Had tons of egtv_seen cookies and also one called ebNewBandwidth_www.eurogamer.net but they had nothing to do with it. If I am logged in the site is slow, seems like some database query takes a bit too long for me.
