The comment above concerns me - that should certainly not be the case. Clicking an X or an O should be near-instantaneous. Have you tried using a different browser, such as Firefox? Its available for free at: www.getfirefox.com

Puzzle scores are awarded based on time elapsed. Generally speaking, very good solvers can knock out a puzzle in 4-5 minutes, and those are awarded higher scores than those solved in 15-20 minutes.
