The Stockyard header art is H-U-G-E, pushing content below the fold. I realize there are some old fogies like Dave LaRonde who may need large print, but ... the COW needs to shrink that bright, shiny category selector so that users don't have to immediately scroll down every time a new content page loads.

Go, COW! (Love you, Dave.)

Jeff,

Thank you for your feedback, it is greatly appreciated. The header was a conscious decision. We understand your point and have implemented technology that will hold your place on the screen from one search result page to the next.

Less the size for me but the video load times: way slow for even non HD previews. Vimeo, YouTube not to mention other stock companies have lightning fast loading. I am hoping this is just getting the bugs worked out.

Overall I really like the look though!

Doug,

Thanks for your feedback. I'll send this on to Abraham. What kind of connection do you have? I'm able to load the rollover previews and the page previews almost instantly.

It appears to be related to using Chrome as a browser (normally very speedy). My connection is cable through a gigabit network, so it's definitely on the software side. I loaded up some videos just now in IE 9 and it was almost instant. On Chrome I had a hard time even getting the page to load. Odd, but I've seen it before.

Doug,

That's really bizarre. What version of Chrome? I use Chrome exclusively and have no problems with load time. I'll send your findings on to Abraham.

Hmmmm.... Odder still, seeing as how you're using it too.

I am using Chrome 16.0.912.75 m with Windows 7 sp2 64-bit. And like I said, I've had issues before, but on other video heavy sites like Vimeo, or StockBank for instance, there are no problems at all. At least for now I can just use IE9 if I want to browse your stock selection.
