I’m looking to see if anyone can give me some tips or tricks they may have for browser performance with large flowcharts.
I’m on a Late '13 Mac Pro. Not the newest, I’m really not a “light user” and there really isn’t much that can make this thing crawl. Chrome plus a large Whimsical flowchart is actually the only thing that has been able to beat my machine up without really going out of my way. When I say beat up, I mean it’s not just slow, but it’s really really unusable compared to my experience on other machines. We’re talking 5 second hangs even for a very simple layer selection.
I noticed that the percentage of GPU usage was super high while doing just about anything so I figured there were some things I could change in Chrome settings. In my chrome://flags everything else is set with the defaults, but by disabling Accelerated 2D canvas I was able to get it down to using about 1/3 of the GPU it required on average previously.
Has anyone experienced the same, or have any tips for what the right approach is with this setting, or any other Chrome flags to try to get some of the load off of my GPU?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
