New comment editor -- nice, but badly slow to load Answered
So I like the new comment editor that's been deployed. It looks just like the "standard" edit boxes with formatting icons across the top (including the silly pseudo-Micros**t tab edges that don't do anything).
However, it is really slow to load. I timed it a over fifteen seconds just now. I was able to type in the whole title and keywords for this posting before the edit box was ready to be used. Caching the icons doesn't seem to be the issue, as this is the third edit box I've opened this morning. Unless that speed can be improved, this may create more irritation and complaints than it's worth.
(Minor update, looks like Eric's announcement that re-editing wouldn't work has been fixed.)
