Browser issue CSS3 Lag


Well-known member
Using css3 gradients and box-shadows causes extensive lag when scrolling, opening member cards, and parking the car.
Would it be possible to lessen the lag in future releases? as a live example of what i'm talking about.

It is - these features make the browser do a lot of additional rendering, especially in combination. You can see this by looking at detailed paint statistics like exposed in Chrome.

Nothing really significant here from the XF perspective.

If I remove the box-shadows and css3 gradients it goes away, and you are right, it is browser-specific. This does not happen on firefox, but the majority of my users use chrome so it's a big issue :(
