The slowness could simply be because you also have the slideshow running, which is already taxing on the browser. Add the flex level menu, and the animation becomes slow. To confirm this, what happens if you temporarily disable the slideshow?

One potential quick improvement you can try is to upgrade from the current version of jQuery, 1.3.2, to the latest version. Change the reference on your page to:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

Thanks for the advice. Some improvements noted.

Is there any slideshow script or drop-down multi-level menu which might allow the page to run faster?

I can't seem to trigger the drop-down menu on iphone. Is there any drop-down menu scripts that worked well along on touch-devices as well eg. iphone?

thanks in advance!
