Some speed and loading issues may be due to general high internet load and website traffic due to new devices being registered and seasonal shopping. I have noticed that between 5-7pm browser response, even on other devices is poor. Although one of them my Xoom is notorious for poor browser speed.

Worst update ever. Wifi is better but now my tablet is slow. Anyone else have this issue?
Wifi is better? In what way? I could stay reliably connected before, had barely any issues with the NT in any fashion whatsoever. Now it's up and down, up and down, every few minutes. TERRIBLE update. BN has ONE WEEK to fix this or the NT is being returned and I'll get something else - most likely a Kindle Fire, despite its own shortcomings (it's better than the NT now with its own recent update.) 1.4.1 was one of the absolute worst software updates I have ever, EVER seen for any product.
As for email, if BN would just remove the "25 previous emails" restriction, it would be a usable client.
And if they would add actual TABS to the browser it would be a good web browser. As it is, both of these MAJOR components of a tablet are hobbled and crippled for absolutely no reason, and now BN has made it next to impossible for normal people to get better apps to take care of these everyday internet needs with 1.4.1, since that destroys the ability to sideload what BN can't be bothered to provide in their terrible app store.

BN has lost me as a customer for many reasons with this update.
Stopped the ability to sideload applications- BN wants to box me in so I am forced only to use the applications you can get on BN site. What a joke. The store has so few applications and the cost is higher than at other sites. Thank goodness I sideloaded some apps before this stupid update. I have the dolphin browser installed that includes tab browsing.
My Nook freezes up on the library screen if I try to change how my books are viewed. Not an issue before the update.
BN does not give the owner the choice to accept or reject updates.
I went out a bought the kindle fire after BN did this update. They don't seem to think highly of their customers by trying to control how we can use a product that we paid for.
KIndle fire has its own set of issues. However, comparing tablet to fire, fire is less controlling.
I will still buy books from BN if the book is more expensive at Amazon by .50 or more.
