good luck with that i guess
@hierarchon oh my god
that's amazingly terrible
"why don't we take an already high latency task... and add more latency..."
@hierarchon imagine a tech world in which software are so horrendously developed that you need to pay some random company to "optimize" performance
@hierarchon "Dear user, we absolutely will not just steal all of your data and record every keystroke you enter into browser, our hacks are for performance, swear on me mum's life."
