Slow page load
  • z at 2023-01-03

    Since around two weeks ago, LG has been quite slow. Each page load takes a couple of seconds. Is it just me?

    At the end of the page, you have a figure for time to load in ms, mine says:

    What is yours?

    @Caroll: That number measures server-side latency, which is usually a few milliseconds. I'm talking about a significant increase of client-side latency in the past few weeks. It takes more than 5 seconds to load this very page, according to Chrome's dev tools.

    This page loaded in 100 ms for me. And I don't have a great connection usually.

    A few games (e.g. Tumbleweed and Chess960) use some fancier slower technology than simple html; looking at the page source code,, it seems to be some “flutter build” thing (whatever that is), loaded in a frame.

    The main page loads fairly quick for me, but then the frame with the flutter build (or whatever) displays the board only after a longer delay, with some circular progress bar thing rotating for a few seconds first.

    Unfortunately, sometimes the board does not load at all for me in Firefox, even after waiting several minutes, so I see no board and cannot do my turn. :(

    I tried Chromium for that same game, and the board loaded, but then I could not click on it to make my move. :(

    These flutter-implemented games also don't load on an android telephone I tried using.

    So I wish these games used the same simpler html like other games I've played here.

    (FWIW I exited and restarted Firefox, and then my Tumbleweed board finally loaded OK.)

    I tried to access the site through two providers. With one, the download is instantaneous, but the other takes several minutes. But if i activate the “Browsec” extension in the browser, the loading speeds up to normal.
    And, yes, this begins in January.

    Maybe this is due to the fact that the clock on the site is too behind?
