Don’t get me wrong. I love Google Docs.
But it’s slowness drives me crazy.
When I start opening a Doc it goes through several frustrating phases (with very rough times):
- blank page – 5 seconds
- content (which can’t be edited) – another 10 seconds
- rendering table of contents in sidemenu – another 3 seconds
The frustrating stages are 2 and 3 where it feels as if I should be able to edit content but can’t.
In total, it’s almost 20 seconds before the content can be edited. What makes it even more frustrating is that during phase 2 it appears as if the content can be edited but can’t until various other things have loaded.
