That link has pics at the top in the typical web arrangement - a big picture with thumbnails below.

Why is it that if you go to a nice small blog, the thumbnails below would be triggered by OnMouseOver and update the big image really quickly. On a reasonably modern site, the little thumbnails would have OnMouseClick events and update the image in an AJAX-y near-instant fashion.

But at wired.com, they're multi-second full page reloads. Don't they notice how much less pleasant it is? Don't they see they're supposed to be a cutting edge, high tech magazine more than most magazines are?
