I have just been introduced to Cloud 9, and I am impressed so far! However, I do have a couple of questions regarding speed and stability. When I am at home on my Ubuntu machine (Firefox Developer Edition) Cloud 9 was lagging to the point of several seconds. When I would type a command in, it would take several seconds for the terminal to display said command. Additionally, moving the mouse over a menu option would take a second or two for the item to highlight, and then the menu would start to display…slowly. However, at work I see no such problems.
My question is this, would using Firefox Developer Edition have anything to do with this? I was also watching a Udemy course at the same time, and it was also very slow and unresponsive. Would this be because of Cloud 9? Or would the issue be that the Developer Edition is possibly slow itself?
Secondly, does using Cloud 9 require a fast internet connection? As far as I am aware (unless I am missing something) the usability of the terminal and code window should not be at all affected by the speed of my connection, as it is all browser-based computing. However, the exception I could see to this is that the browser is only rendering a “screencast” of a Cloud 9 server machine, which would explain why it is acting so slow. Is this the case?
Does anyone know why it might be so laggy for me at home, but not at work (still using Firefox Developer Edition)? Thanks!
