I have used Fluid for years to create single-page native web applications that run on my Mac. I have one for Help Scout, I have another for Trello, but I have noticed a problem: when replying to tickets in Help Scout, I would experience serious lag. Letters would appear hundreds of milliseconds after I typed.
I thought it was an issue with my computer, but I recently got an iMac Pro and it’s still happening, so I know that’s not the problem!
I tried Epichrome instead (like Fluid but using Chrome instead of Safari as the base), and that wasn’t any better.
Enter nativefier. Instead of using Safari or Chrome, it builds a single-page “native” web application using Electron, the same library that runs Slack and many other cross-platform native-ish web apps. nativefier has been working great.
So if you’re experiencing typing lag while using Fluid or Epichrome, check out nativefier!
