Recently I've started browsing Worldbuilding SE again. I've noticed that on my browser of choice (Safari), it runs at a very choppy pace compared to other sites in the Stack Exchange network such as Stack Overflow. Scrolling on any page feels laggy and choppy to the extent that the site becomes hard to use.

Since I didn't notice it on other Stack Exchange sites, I'd like to know if this is an issue with Safari as a browser or if it might be something specific to this Stack Exchange. If so, what would the fix be (other than switching browsers)?

Unfortunately, as far as regressions are concerned, the last time I visited Worldbuilding SE was a long time ago so I can't give a date for the last time it worked well for me.

    $\begingroup$ macOS 10.13.6, Safari 12.0.2. Web Inspector/Console does not report any errors or warnings with JavaScript on the site. $\endgroup$ – Andrew Fan Jan 1 at 2:45

  • $\begingroup$ @Vincent Seems to be a little different on Safari. The problem described in that question has some similarities but does not seem to be exactly the same problem that I'm experiencing on Safari. $\endgroup$ – Andrew Fan Jan 1 at 22:21
  • $\begingroup$ For what it's worth, I've seen this a few times with the latest Firefox ESR. $\endgroup$ – forest Jan 7 at 4:32
