First of all, I'm new so please correct any mistakes I make and give me advise.
Anyway, the problem is whenever I load any of the pages on my blog, mostly the homepage, it takes a very long time to load. I'm in Chrome 17.0.963.78m and have noticed this ever since I changed from using "filter: alpha(opacity=85%);" and "opacity: 0.85;" on the centre column to "background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);". I'm aware this is a CSS3 thing, but aren't the first two options too? The reason I switched was because I wanted only the white block (is it a div?) of the centre column to be affected, not all the images, text, etc. inside.
Thanks in advance and well done on the great forum. Given me much help in the past. :D
