Would A technical Person at YAHOO answer this question?

I am getting just a bit miffed with

http://uk.yahoo.com/

I am a busy person and i like to type quickly. Your Uk home page is

intensely annoying. I open the page and as soon as the search box appears

and it is by default already BLANK, i start typing in and then some

computer programmer has then chosen to FILL the box with BLANKS

but i have already started typing. So it chops off my text just as it

completes the page download up to 5 to 10 seconds later.

I find this so annoying i have changed my default search engine to

use altavista.com which is now Yahoo's just to avoid this issue.

Ok so my internet isnt the fastest, and my pc isnt the fastest either

but it is a serious problem.

what is your explanation of why you are BLANKing the search TEXT BOX

when it does NOT need it?

Is this intentional or is it linked to ADD-ons?

I wait for your answer.

    thats a problem i dont like either. however what you may not realise is there are other reasons why a webpage search box might cause problems or slow the page initialisation process, one being the Windows Auto-Complete list. you might think about clearing it now and then as something has to load that and check what you are typing in against this monster list which may need emptying. see control panel, internet options,content, auto complete,settings, delete auto complete history. but you are right about how you describe that issue.
