What's up with Quest's website lately? For the better part of a month, it has been showing no graphics at all. I have checked in Firefox 3, Firefox 3.5, IE7 and Safari 4. Not a hint of a graphic image from the site in any of them. Strange... :confused2:

Well, I have had the site open in a tab in FF, in IE7 and Safari 4 for about an hour, now, and there are still no graphics in any of them. It's not like the page loads slowly; each browser shows "Done" quickly enough, but there are no graphics, not even the Quest logo banner at the top of the page.

They appear to have switched to a different e-commerce package provider, whose code seems to be stuck in 1999. Still using old VBScript based ASP, versus new ASP.NET, and table-based, not CSS-based layout.

I'm getting product photos, but they are VERY SSSSLLLOOOWWWW loading.

weird, first time I had ever been to their site and only 2 of the images are full size and take a few minutes to load.

Now that I've looked at the markup a little more, it's obvious they just need to style it up a bit, especially the UL navigation on the left side (which is currently unstyled and ugly), and make thumbnails of the photos on the first page (loading up the full size pictures of the Magnum Sport Loader and the Striker AGM are what's killing them!)
