    Default I must stop reading the Mail Online

    They've suddenly started displaying the main page in a narrower window, with an insufferably off-putting full screen video running behind it and visible on either side.

    Just a few seconds viewing is making me dizzy, and I suspect that if I persevered until I had checked all the headlines I'd have a migraine.

    Yeah, I was a put off by that this morning as well. I did wonder as soon as it loaded if they'd tested it and thought it through properly. Just too much.

    It's the only website that wouldn't load properly at my last client and causes my browser to crash at this one as well. The support guys hate it because of the amount of guff it downloads.

    Just checked - no streaming videos here on my office machine, but apart from the browser doing its thing and stopping that, ABP has picked up 22 nasties on the page as well.

    I'm impressed you've learnt to read. We thought your carer read it out loud for you.
