Two things bout camino i have noticed
1. typing in things, e.g. replying to an email using hotmail, the letters render
very very slowly on the screen.
2. Load a page that you can scroll on, press key down to scroll (use keyboard
down arrow), page is horrendously slow to render.

I thought that it could just be my setup (powerbook g4, 667Mhz, 512Mb ram), but
its not.  I installed safari, and mozilla firebird today and tried the above two
tests.  Both are wickedly normal.  There is something definitely dodgy about
this.  I use Firebird at work (windows 2000), and don't encounter this problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type normally in a text box - each character renders really really slow.
2. Press down arrow on keyboard, the page scroll is horrible - slow slow slow
3.

Actual Results:  
Rending of letters or page is slow slow slow

Expected Results:  
It should keep up with the speed i type at.. 

I know this could be defined as a minor bug, but it seriously degrades the
usablility of the browser to the point where i'm going to switch to either
safari or firebird until this is fixed..
as you said - Camino...

Anandha, try reproducing this problem after quitting Camino and temporarily
removing your ~/Library/Application Support/Chimera folder.

Also, is typing the same in Camino's URL Bar as it is in form fields on a web page?

So i tried the follwowing

www.hotmail.com, logged in, started entering text (body of an email), it was really slow.  Typing in 
the URL bar is fine (quite fast).

Quit camino, renamed ~/Library/Application Support/Chimera to Chimeria.old.  Restarted camino, 
all my bookmarks etc were gone, and tried above.  Results is same - typing into a text box is 
rendered quite slow.

Let me know if you need any more info.
Reporter could you update the sttus of this issue with a more recent build please.
Typing in bugzilla does not seems slow to me - 2003082402.

Text field entry seems fine to me also using 2004021008. Resolving WFM pending
further information from reporter.
