Faster load times

Although I haven’t posted here in a while, don’t think that means I haven’t been busy with Goofram.

Over the last week, I’ve been experimenting with asynchronous Javascript loading in order to give the website a snappier feel.
When it comes to making sure one script loads before another that depends upon it, things start to get a little shaky. Right when it looked like I had things figured out, it would turn out that what works in Firefox on Linux might not work in the same version on Windows. Internet Explorer is a whole other can of worms. If you were having intermittent trouble viewing Goofram over the past week, it was due to these small tweaks.
In any case, things are a more stable now, and Goofram is loading faster than ever. Internet Explorer still needs some work to get the window sizing correct; really, you’d be better off using any other browser, but at least it more-or-less works now.
If you do notice anything weird while viewing Goofram, please drop me a comment here.

There are also some plans in the pipeline for improved compatibility with mobile devices – keep your eyes peeled for those in the upcoming weeks!
