IDEA

Hello. I’ve made a few more observations.

  1. Chat and Discussion take forever to load on Chrome in Android 6.0. Basically, everything in the bottom bar takes too much time to load. Maybe a network issue on a low-cost device in the developing world. But direct messaging in the native Instagram app works much faster. Also, mobile devices in the developing world don’t have a lot of internal storage, forcing users to use mobile sites. Please optimize the mobile site for low bandwidth connections.
  2. The Anglophone world is very small compared to the rest. Please implement l18n and make l10n a community driven project.
  3. Add locale specific log-in and sign-up options for the above reason.
  4. For the lack of a better category, I’m tagging this as an idea.

Thanks Harsha Alva performance is a big concern, I’m going to try reducing the number of threads / replies that we send over by default that should help for low bandwidth connections.

More to follow on the other points…

This could also be related to the JS bundle not being fully loaded loaded and then you click on chat … or one of the navigation items on the bottom. We are working on reducing the size of the JS bundle for faster loading and potentially preventing clicking until the bundle is loaded.
