Just to be clear, it's OK for the PEOPLE on this website to be 'slow', just not the website itself, right? That's what we're against, correct?

We prefer to think of you as 'special'.

Why Thank You. Is that why I get to wear this nice padded coat you gave me?

This is still a nightmare. I simply can't use Chrome to write. It's not even limited to the forums...sending a PM is also proving painful.

It takes a few minutes for it to happen to me, and if I close the tab in Chrome and then open it again it is ok for another few minutes. Is it some kind of memory leak?

Possibly. Try Gingko Biloba.

Everything seems to be working fine again after the latest Chrome update. No more Edge!  :smitten:

I'm having something of the same issue, JD. For a few weeks now.

Sometimes the typing gets intermittent in that it takes a few seconds before what I'm typing/clicking actually appears, but more often it just sits there and does absolutely nothing.

I've found if I click in another tab and then click back, whatever I've typed appears. Since I'm aware of this, I'll start typing a sentence or two and nothing appears, but then I click out and back in again and poof, it's all there as if everything's normal.

That doesn't always work though. I'll start typing and after a few seconds the page will jump halfway down. I have to scroll back up and click in the message box, which does not always work and sometimes takes multiple tries.

It's driving me nuts. I had to switch over to Firefox where I don't see any problems typing for the moment.

What browser are you guys using? My Macs have been fine but on my windowbox I've been using Chrome and get the freezing and stutters too, though not all the time. I'm starting to suspect some periodic data harvesting tomfoolery from Google or Microsoft.

Or both.

Chrome.

It's only been an issue in the last two, three weeks or so for me.

Using Firefox now for GH and no problems. I'll never use IE though. I'd rather go back to my 1200 baud modem and dial up BBS sites from that huge book that listed all the numbers back in the day.
