Re: Sluggish browse mode keystrokes in Google Chrome


I also find gmail to be slower in performance when is used in combination with chrome canary and windows 10.
On windows 7 it works fine.
I am having the latest windows 10 update 1809 and nvda 2018.3.2.
I also tried with nvda alpha portable with similar results.
It is especially slow when composing or replying emails, or when you read the body of an email.
For my kace it shouldn't be slow as I don't have conversations enabled, and I open each email in a new window using shift+enter.
I am using the new gmail interface which is not yet enabled for everyone by default as far as I know.
You can enable it in gmail's settings.
