It's possible you have visited the website during a scheduled update or maintenance. Or it could be that we have so many visitors that the servers are overloaded with traffic.

  • Your browser might be outdated or your java or flash may be in need of an update.
  • Answers is a modern website that uses modern technology, so if your computer is "old", it may struggle with the new modern technology.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer, you are recommended to switch to Chrome or Firefox. Internet Explorer is hugely outdated and is a massive computer resource hogger, meaning it loads sites too sluggishly.

If you join the website as a member, you have the option to disable adverts in your account settings, which will improve things for some.


I suggest disabling flash when viewing things on answers.com.
