Ever wondered why Mastodon feels so laggy when you're trying to type a message?
@flussence I'd actually love to see that
@Seajun_ here it is
@flussence it does not feel laggy for me...
@flussence Wow. That probably will need to be fixed....
@flussence This is why I want desktop client (like Corebird for Twitter).
@flussence Brutaldon all the way.

@flussence it's just text so it's fine rite ,
@flussence web browsers were a mistake
Java applets were normal programs atleast, they relied on your internal java setup and were just downloaded java applications, they were not running in the browser (or not completely.) Still i think it is good they died because they sure might've turn into something JS is now. And instead just live peacefully in my memory as a warm and precious thing
@d_ @flussence @sir
@flussence filed under "use pinafore"
@flussence Rewrite it in Webassembly
@flussence oh hell yea
@flussence Tusky is quick.
@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
@flussence Yup, I'll blame React for this one too.
@flussence That looks like a lot. Is it a lot?
@NHonigdachs if you look at the number line between the graphs, it's jumping from 22,360 to 22,470ms, or taking over 1/10 of a second for a single letter.
That's bad enough on its own, but if you look at the green framerate graph it stays at around 1fps whenever it's busy doing this. So if you type too fast, the entire UI just backs up until you wait for it to catch up. On old hardware it's common to type out entire paragraphs and have to wait a minute to see them appear.
@flussence That explains a lot!
what the fuck is masto even doing anyway? lmao
@flussence I've never had it feel laggy.
Damn; what version of FL Studio is that‽
