I have been forced to actually use Edge to use this site. EDGE! The indignity of it all!

Disgraceful.

So I've been using IE all day and I didn't have a problem. 

Not 5 minutes ago, I used Chrome to reply the the Consolidate Gun Control thread and it was a nightmare. At one point it took over a minute to display the 6 words I had typed.

I'm currently suspecting Chrome is the issue. I haven't noticed the problem on other sites, though I don't post on many other sites.

And I'm using Chrome currently and noticing the issue again - though not as bad as earlier.

I'm using Safari on a Mac, and it seems to be working just fine.

I'll bet it's that Chrome update that just came down this week.

Yeah. Google just rolled out a crappy built in ad-filter for Chrome. I'm guessing that it's having a bunch of unintended consequences.

I'm using Firefox without any issues.

I switched from Firefox to Chrome years ago over issues I can't even remember.

For awhile, Firefox had big problems with memory leaks. It's much better now than a couple years ago.

I use Chrome and Firefox together at work (two screens with each running on one). I only use Firefox at home.
