I'd say they are broke.Are they broken ?
Then why "fix" them ?
They are as fast as the IPS ones for me. Almost an immediate load when I hover over the Like link on my install of IPS or the XF support site.However... I don't know about anyone else, but the newfangled smilies on XF2 are *SO* slow to load, I mean about 5 seconds every time you click on the option in the editor. I did raise this at XF and a few others had similar issues, I'd hate to see how slow it is on mobile. So updating to the latest isn't always the greatest
Yep, the first time with XF seems to take a LONG time... but after that it's fairly quick... but I consider the smilies broke on XF currently. I hardly ever use them so don't keep up with the speed. I'll not be running 2.1 until I'm sure that my in use add-ons are supported. ShowCase is the main requirement.They are as fast as the IPS ones for me. Almost an immediate load when I hover over the Like link on my install of IPS or the XF support site.
Thats a stretch of an example that isn't similar at all.The smileys are fine. It's like some young people telling us we should ditch our room full of stereo stuff for a smart phone.
