Dear Observable team,
It is good to have this new feature https://talk.observablehq.com/t/infinite-loops-and-you/2740 as it was quite annoying before when the notebooks in other tabs got affected!
However, I found ever since 16 Jan, several of our team notebooks has become extremely slow during reloading. For example, when refreshing the page it took 2 minutes before it completed loading. Mouse movement was almost totally not possible during these 2 minutes. Switching to a different data set in the same notebook (which triggers cells to react) also took more than half 1 minute. When i was about to edit a cell, clicking on the cell code resulted in a noticeable 1-2 seconds before the mouse cursor appeared.
Compared to Observable before 16 Jan, there was no above issues and it was much smoother and there was no noticeable delay. Some of our team notebooks have already run for few months w/o this performance issue.
Is there a chance to choose which Observable library version to use. It was really annoying, and I am choosing between either rewriting the notebook or switching to other platforms, which is not expected.
I will try to provide a share version of the notebook for reproducing this issue, but it may take some time…
