Our little zombie, lovingly called the Feature Creep is at it again.  That means we have some minor changes that should please most of you.

First is a substantial difference in the speed of the Player Finder pages.  It affects both local & online only pages and wow are they faster.  After running a series of tests for the Online Gamers search, we've found it runs an average of about 1,500% faster than previous page loads.  No, that is not a typo.  It is indeed fifteen-hundred percent faster.   And this change also benefits the Local Gamers search page as well with similar speed increases.  Woot!

Second, we moved from HTTP to HTTPS.  This is an alteration that most of you might not have even noticed if it had not pointed it out in this article.  But it shouldn't affect anyone negatively, in fact HTTPS typically loads pages faster than HTTP.  So it'll be a boon to all of us.

So that is it for things you guys might notice.  There are always little things being fixed in the background, that's just life in web site development.  But before I forget:  The Group Finder is going through a redesign soon.  Right now I'm looking at different ways to make that better.  If you have some ideas that would make everybody happy, let me know through feedback.  Or you could post this in the comments on this article.
