It doesn't happen for me, and I'd like to see links to these threads on vb.com

Comp if you look yourself, most of the styles are "rounded" its right in front of your eyes! And compare those rounded corners to vB3, then add the code he provided its the same just everything that was round is now not forced to be round.

YES I REALIZE THAT

What I'm not understanding is HOW this effects the speed at which the page will render so horribly. You guys are failing to prove this in any documented and benchmarked way. Stop being so thickheaded and avoiding answering the question as to HOW this effects page loading and how badly, only stating that it does.

Plenty of stuff about shading and rounded corners slowing sites down, esp. in Mozilla.

I am pretty sure this harks back to Nifty but anyhoo..

Found this interesting:

Using Liquid Canvas

I think those stating it slows the page down, are basing this on the rendering of rounded corner images. But using javascript to accomplish the task.

I have seen no speed increase/decrease either way

The only difference removing the rounded corners will make is that the page will render slightly faster on slow computers that are using old browsers.

In fact, if you are using Internet Explorer, which simply ignores all the rounded corners anyway, you won't notice a difference at all.

It's like saying "make the background blue" to make it faster. All you're doing is changing the look.

We are not out to prove anything, we are saying this fix improves speed. No more, no less. The only one being thickheaded about this is you.

If you can't prove it it's not true, you just believe it is.

Not sending the rounded corners will increase page rendering time in browsers that do support rounded borders.

It will not actually improve users time that it takes to get the page from your server.

The rounded corners are rendered client side as compwhizii points out. True, the overall performance of board will improve, if the client render time is reduced. On a modern machine, however, this change will have almost no effect. This is a technicality.

What I'd like to see are perf comparisons on neutral hardware using the same payload.
