Development Tools Unused CSS Stages Transitions and Transforms 3D Transforms: Part 1

Long html file reload times

When I have my HTML or CSS file opened in the browser, then edit some code, then hit refresh, it takes around 5 to 10 seconds to reload. It's almost instant in the videos. How could I speed this up?

  • Windows 7
  • Sublime Text 3
  • Google Chrome

Thanks for the response, Vlatko, but I ended up swapping from Windows 7 to Elementary OS (it's similar to Ubuntu but feels like OSX). Everything works as expected in the new OS, so problem solved!

It should be instant as well if you're running the files off of your computer. I would say try closing/reopening Chrome to see if that helps.

Recently, I've noticed I'm having problems with CSS transitions and animations..and this has been reported as a bug in Chromium...I use:

Google Chrome 40.0.2214.111 m Sublime Text 2 Windows 7 64-bit

The bug either prevents transitions and animations from firing altogether...or the time it takes to fire is ridiculously long (I had one last about eighteen minutes). However, some people are arguing that this is somehow a Windows issue...but don't quote me. I'm not sure how or if it's going to resolve itself soon...but I know I can't afford a new OS...and I don't have the issue in Firefox 35 or Internet Explorer 11...I think it's IE11 I'm using...

Anyhow...TL:DR...switch to Firefox to test and use until Google works it out (if that's the culprit). I might have to give that Elementary OS a shot (now that I notice you switched.
