UX "slower" with 7.7 beta?

Having recently updated to 1Password 7 Version 7.7.BETA-1 (70700001), I've noted that the user-interface seems noticeably "slower", not only in terms of the responsiveness to actions while editing, but also in rendering the results once you hit "Save".

I've already rebooted and restarted 1Password to make sure it's wasn't my system, nothing else is running, and I'm got quite capable hardware (MBP 16", 2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9, 32GB memory), so I'm quite sure it's not my fault.

If I had to guess, looking from the outside, the "Save" issue might be that the re-fresh of the data is not occuring until the sync with the server is complete and some signal is coming back, which I get, but it's a good 0.5-1.0 second before that happens and it's quite disconcerting to not know if the changes I made were actually saved or lost. If that client-server delay is the issue, then someone with a slower internet connection would have an even larger delay than I'm getting.

Regardless, this seems like a change for the worse since previously all changes were rendered locally immediately.

    Hi @esquared

    Thank you for the report. If you repeat this same test while disconnected from the internet do you notice a difference?


  • Anecdotally, yes. I tested offline, on (wired) and on (wifi). This time delay seemed to be 1.5-2.0 seconds when online, regardless of wired or wifi. I guess that sort of confirms my hypothesis.

    In case it matters, I have a very reasonable broadband connection (100/20, although it is Comcast, so meh!). Not fibre, but not slow either.

  • Oh, didn't' say it explicitly, so: when offline, changes are re-rendered "immediately", though I can still see the refresh occur (0.1 sec, or so), switching from the "cached" old state to the new state.
