Dear Observable team,
Developing observable notebooks is fun.
While developing observable notebooks we found there was especially noticeable delay when panning around network diagrams in Edge browser.
This is the notebook we tested in two Edge browsers (version 40 and 44), Chrome and Firefox running on a Dell laptop with Intel core i5, 16GB memory.
When i set node count to 20 or higher, panning responded slowly in Edge, but remained fairly smooth in Chrome and Firefox.
This was a simple example with cola.js computing initial position of nodes and links, while panning was handled through d3.drag callback and select join APIs.
As we are recently testing our notebooks over large surface display such as Surface Hub which shipped only with Edge browser, is there any suggestion improving its panning performance in Edge?
