Submitter’s comments: Total waste of time. Never mind the click-bait aspect. The site owners are obviously only into the ad-grab not information as the name implies. So much is trying to load it regularly crashes. This is after waiting through ads that regularly lock up the screen. The result is you wait again. Read through half the page….crash. Wait, reload, crash. Lol!
This site says it is one of the top business-related websites as measured by traffic.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: I belong to the camp that really likes Business Insider. Heck, I even share some of their stories on my Facebook page. In the past, there have been problems with their mobile app. They’ve fixed the biggest problem: tapping the back button caused the home page to reload instead of going back to where your story was located. There are a lot of articles whose connection to business is tenuous, at best, but I visit the site 2-3 times per day.
I don’t doubt the crashing and locking up problems still occur on some devices. Not sure which. Why I made it a sucker is the repeating stories. This happens when you’re finished reading an article and hit Back. It’s sporadic so it’s not completely reproducible when you want to show it. This screenshot (1.36Mb) shows three stories that were repeated on the home page.
