Ever wondered why Mastodon feels so laggy when you're trying to type a message?

This is the amount of JavaScript it runs on every keystroke.


@flussence i suppose this is why it is literally impossible to type a post on my imac g3

(i've succeeded only by writing it in textedit and then pasting it)

@ky0ko that sounds like torture

I try to use it on an Atom netbook and it is Not Fun

@ky0ko (this screenshot was taken on my desktop with tons of cores and GPU, not netbook)

@flussence this kind of thing is why i wish developers were required to do development and testing on low-end consumer hardware

@ky0ko @flussence it’s why i keep an iphone 3gs and shit tier android phone around.
