Slowness of Google Docs

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):

  1. blank page – 5 seconds
  2. content (which can’t be edited) – another 10 seconds
  3. 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.
