I still get the loading in pieces experience. The AppleCentral logo shows up after about five seconds, then a quarter of a second later the rest of the page loads.
I get the same thing exactly, after the wait the AppleCentral Logo comes first, then the rest of the page. What I meant by pieces loading, for example, the Search box. MacTech Only Search: and the Community Search: text show first. Then the rounded corners of the search field area draw, then the horizontal lines of the search field oval would draw, then the GO buttons appear. After the initial loading, all items draw at the same time. I can reproduce the pieces loading by reloading a page or emptying cache.
I posted a video below. I hit reload at around 0:05, (the part with the web address is when the page was blank and waiting to load.) At 0:25 I clicked the Forums link, as you see, then after it connects it all draws instantly. It draws a little slower than usual because the screen capture software is using a lot of CPU.
It used to do the pieces parts thing all the time until the recent move, so that has improved. Now it only does it after it's not cached or if it reloads.
This forum is still slow. Takes 3 to 4-1/2 seconds for me to open different posts and then go back to other threads.

Disclosure: I don't even load ads! Have them turned off! Yeah, I am not supportive and all that other stuff. Sorry, I don't have ads on for any web pages I visit. I'm the only person in the world who does this -- so I'll probably die and go to he!!.
