Status/Performance of the Visual Editor

I’ve just tried to edit a style in the visual editor. Even the most trivial changes took like forever. My browsers (firefox and chromium) crashed multiple times. Have others had similar experiences?

It seems oddly slow today, which is weird. I used it yesterday with no issues.
Since it’s a static JS page, I don’t think it should depend on server performance, but might be missing how it loads some component. We’ll keep monitoring this.

As an update – it looks a bit faster to me now. It also seems like it’s more sensitive to handling long/complex styles (which would make sense – I don’t think it’s likely implementing citeproc-js in the most efficient manner), so especially if you’re trying to work with APA and derivatives, it still seems sluggish.
