MDN is so slow... What alternative do you use?

Hi all,

I like how exhaustive and accurate MDN is as a reference for all things HTML, CSS and JS. But it is slow. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a good alternative?

devdocs.io it's like a searchable frontend for MDN plus the docs for another 2 dozen popular web languages.

On the topic of good references I also like:

How about: http://www.w3.org/

From there I found: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/Main_Page which is an open source community dedicated to documenting HTML, CSS, etc... with the oversight of w3c.

Thanks but I find it harder to navigate than MDN.

It is much worse, most of Web Platform is pulling stuff from MDN & dev.opera.com
