Disabling these features will mean redirects are server-side 302’s, and near instantaneous.

Why do javascript tags slow down redirects?

These features require us to show a blank interstitial page when the user clicks on a link, so that the tags that make these features work can be fired.

The blank page is shown for 0.5 seconds to give the tags enough time to call back to their respective services (e.g. Google Analytics, Facebook), before the user is finally redirected.
