When typing on this website, the keyboard gets very sluggish, taking up to 15 seconds for text to appear on the page after typing.
Very strange.......

Anyone have any thoughts on this issue??
Use a different browser? Even better yet, use a different OS and browser. I can recommend Xubuntu 16.04 LTS at work and home (http://xubuntu.org/). If you don't need any special apps the require Windows, then its worth the learning curve, IMO. It comes "out of the box" with:

- Xfce desktop. Lighter than KDE and Gnome but has enough desktop apps to be complete.
- Firefox web browser.
- Pidgin IM (can use it with Microsoft Lync using pidgin-sipe).
- Thunderbird mail client (can use it with MS Exchange 2007+ with IMAP, Lightning and another add-on).
- XFburn to make data or audio CD/DVDs.
- PDF viewer.
- Bunch of stuff...

I also added LibreOffice to edit and create MS Office docs and spreadsheets, VirtualBox to run Windows 7 in an VM, Chrome, etc. You can go crazy and install whatever you want. Also really easy to keep up to date.
