I thought i'd bring up the issue of the template using a lot of memory on Chrome, again.
I have just bought a brand new laptop, it had the Chrome installer with it, so I installed the latest version, and i'm getting the same issue as I do with the PC. The memory goes sky-high, and the browser turns in to a slug.
Here's a screenshot of the task manager before I open Chrome, and a screenshot of it with one tab open on the template:https://postimg.org/image/jah2kp5ad/https://postimg.org/image/9bw3y7vut/
It's either a problem with Chrome, or there's something in the template that Chrome doesn't like. It's a mystery!
i can confirm there is more memory used on this template (mine and your sites) ut browser is not sluggish at all even with multiple windows open to other sites.
to be frank there is nowt I can do about that all the while there are thousands of articles on why Google chrome eats your memory but is it a bad thing? as this article explains https://lifehacker.com/why-chrome-uses- ... 1702537477
, there are many more articles that highlight similar issues that date back long ago .historically this problem has existed with the chrome browser for many years.
I can only say my 2005 laptop with 1gb memory which the integrated video card uses 256mb from that 1gb ..does not experience any sluggishness when opening multiple tabs.i think when the issue last raised i went and opened up deliberately 2 or 3 you tube videos in separate tabs alongside the template being opened in another tab i didn't see any issues..
sorry I dont have the magic solution but neither do many of the gurus all the net , they suggest various ways but seem to always revert back to is it a bad thing that chrome eats the memory ?..
so your spanking brand new computer cant run the website template smoothly but my old 2005 HP 1GB laptop has no issues . so where i DO I START ?
its impossible to narrow it down to any specific script and simply opening up the template in IE,FF,SAFARI,Opera and other chrome variants like vivaldi,Brave, + many others i tend to test on at regular intervals,firefox focus(very slimmed downed version of FF ipad new browser) doesn't produce any problems .
as harsh as it may sound if it is causing issues then don't use the template there are many others out there like saratoga that are not dependant on additional jquery/css scripts to produce visualisations at frequent intervals, this template offers visual elements to the data value outputs many other templates don't offer much in terms of visualisation when dealing with your realtime data values which are updated from anywhere to 2 seconds to 5 minutes , so think about it the template is rendering visually at anywhere between every two seconds to 5 minutes . if there were no visual elements just text then perhaps this would not cause you an issue ..
the template once installed theoretically only has an INITIAL page load size of no more 600kb !! may vary higher or lower (mine is 470kb) depending on end user modifications added on ,Ive always focused on performance and in the past I have dumped ideas in the trash bin due to causing slow load times..
So I have no idea where I would start, but has I experienced many times in the past I can go modifying the scripts only to find that the issue was the end user just like recently Toxic raised an issue about forecast data only to find it was remedied by the setting.So I can spend hours chasing or looking for something that don't exist , don't take that as an insult Im merely pointing out that this has happened many many times however there are genuine issues that get spotted and resolved from input by others so in this case it would be better to try and resolve amongst yourselves and a find a solution that doesn't break the template in other browsers thats the critical point other browsers..
some quick tests i did this morning
PageSpeed Score (97%) YSlow Score (96%) Page Details Fully Loaded Time 6.0s Total Page Size 527KB
PageSpeed Score (98%) YSlow Score (97%) Page Details Fully Loaded Time 4.3s Total Page Size 481KB
PageSpeed Score (99%) YSlow Score (97%) Page Details Fully Loaded Time 2.6s Total Page Size 470KB
so you can see I have always tried to produce something that is reasonably good on loading based on what we or I are trying to achieve and that is
add visual elements , a pleasant fresh user experience to the template instead of just text values ..
As always Im all ears and open to ideas and solutions and would happily implement them and credit or acknowledge any valuable input because I believe sharing ideas amongst us makes it better for everyone .
please don't be offended I'm merely trying to ask others or yourselves to help in resolving it ..
