The more you rely on Javascript the more likely your page load/render times will be affected by any problems between the visitor’s browser and whatever remote server they are trying to connect to. The more remote servers your page code refers to the more likely any one of them will cause your visitor’s browser to lock up. There are ways to ensure that a hung server won’t freeze the browser, but most Websites don’t implement those techniques. The most common causes of browser lock up are advertising and analytics code.
