Unusable SCoA?

I can't be the only person experiencing this. For the past week or two this site has been pretty much inoperable for me. It crashes my phone (I don't use the app or mobile view, just the site itself), I can't view any images, none of the drop down menus work, avatars are gone, and pretty much all of the formatting options are broken too.

Doesn't matter what platform I'm using, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, MacOS...it doesn't work. :/

EDIT: This appears related to the recent Chrome update. I'm going to try nuking cookies and then I'll report back.

Amusingly, here's a screenshot I took writing this (linking to an outside site should still work, I hope):

Don't worry, the desktop version isn't much better. It's gotten so heavy loaded with now about 20 cross-site tracking scripts (which I don't allow) that it's quite tricky to keep functioning enough to post. I guess they're trying to milk our data as much as possible, which is understandable as they need to live off something while providing free service. But it's gotten out of hand and usability suffers.

I've given up on my iPhone and iPad as they crash while loading the pages. Have not tried the app but suspect it won't be any better. Wind up using Safari on my MacBook Pro and so far it is working but all the extra junk loading up from the site is what was bringing down my other devices. Not much we can do though as the host runs all that junk so that we can have free/cheap access.

Does anyone know if the paid subscription loads less junk/trackers?
If that were the case, I'd pay in a heartbeat!

But it doesn't say anything about that on the info page about the paid subscription. Just more storage for photos. So I doubt it's any different.

If you are having a lot of issues with it loading please do post your opperating system, browser and device if its mobile. It helps me to try to replicate the issue and try to trouble shoot it.

Do keep me posted if nuking your cookies helped.
