Is it just my phone or Dev.to is heavy?

I have A Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini with the latest official update (6.0.1) and latest version of Chrome and Android Web View. I notice that Dev.to behaves good on the browser except when I swipe to open the sidebar (each one). The page starts to lag until I close the sidebar.

This feature works good with other websites that I have visited. I want to learn about PWA and want to know if this is something related to my hardware limitation or something else.

Thank you in advance for reading :)

I have also experienced it. I'm not familiar with the dev.to codebase, but I did a little debugging in the browser. I posted my findings on the GitHub issue:

I think this may have something to do with the service worker making a huge amount of requests. On the standard desktop view it only triggers network requests when hovering over a link. Shrinking down the browser then opening the sidebar makes it go out of control. image

Oh my! Thank you. I'm very interested in this issue and will create the issue there (First will check if there isn't one already)! Good find!

You're not alone!

My LG G6 struggles after I open the sidebar also.

Just tested on my Pixel 1, also started lagging when the side-bar opened

Samsung Note9, with 8.1 I didn't even know there were sidebars until now lol. Yes they are a bit laggy.
