I'm using a navigation bar with 8 buttons. The navigation bar loads very slowly (always last item to load on page). I've tried to load my pages from home (DSL connection) and at work (T1) and see the same results. What contributes to this slow loading and can it be minimized?

This could have to do with the entire size of the page.

Is there a good "rule of thumb" for page sizes? I know there are tools available to analyze load times. Do you have any favorites?

Actually the only rule of thumb I go by is less is more....Use Pix Resizer
for all your images.
