Yep, here too......
But I don't "wait" anymore - as I have the upper part of the page I click on "stop" and voila the page is there ........ well, it works MOST of the time
Sitting and waiting for CNET pages to load is becoming mighty old. Just now after the "Viruses and Security Alerts" heading was loaded it took 1 minute and 40 seconds for the page to finish.
I don't know but it appears the Engineers are stumped. I for one will not continue to stare at blank pages. There are better things to do!
