  • fb Connect looks like a zit!

    The fb Connect button just looks awful.
    Looks like a zit on a forehead.

    On my screen it's the last thing to load and just draws your eyes to it.
    Maybe if the color matched it would be different.
    It just looks like an after thought.
    Oh wait. It was.

      I thought it was just my slow computer.

          I don't see any problem with FB connect button. Looks fine to me

            Color scheme is wrong. I understand there is a limitation on the graphic used. It loads after the rest of my page.
            Other than that, it's just fine.

              I think it loads last because it involves a call to another site.
              Baby, I was born this way

                It must be coming from Facebook's CDN.
                The facebook feature is adding a fair amount of overhead to pageloads.
                I see these new calls:

                That means there are two additional DNS lookups and unfortunately not all of the files are using long expires headers.
                If you read it online, it must be true.

                  Then they shouldn't have chosen to use the standard fbml button, besides the fact that it loads slow, it's ugly.

                    Slightly off topic, does anyone have an iss with FBC and the anti spam service?

                      Hopefully no security issues with this
