  3. Why Is lichess So Slow Nowadays?

What happened? It used to be the fastest among all online gaming Chess sites! Why'd it get so slow, especially the app?

It's not

Ive been having the same problem with the app

I haven't been having this problem. Try typing "speed test" into google to find out how fast your internet connection is. If it's under, say, 5 Mbps then unfortunately your poor lichess experience is because of your slow internet connection.

Lichess runs great for me, probably your internet.

lichess.org works great,propably you have broken or decent connection

Thanks for the replies all, I was wondering because another Chess app is faster and the lichess app used to be faster than that.
