We just launched a change that makes your FriendFeed home page load 3 - 8 times faster, and most people's FriendFeed pages now load in less than 50 milliseconds. This change will be particularly noticeable for people with a lot of subscriptions (yes, we were thinking you, Robert).
We appreciate all the feedback we have gotten on the product since launch. This change lays the foundation for a lot of features and bug fixes to come over the next few weeks. Keep the feedback coming!
