    Speed in software is probably the most valuable, least valued asset.

    Agree 100%.

    Speed can be a good proxy for general engineering quality. If an application slows down on simple tasks, then it can mean the engineers aren’t obsessive detail sticklers. Not always, but it can mean disastrous other issues lurk.

    Lack of speed and unpredictability are such good indicators of tech debt and other issues. I like this article.

    Just opening the new file dialog in Photoshop takes seconds.

    It’s terrible. Thankfully, there is a setting to switch to the old dialog, if you’d like.

    A rare blog post on DN that I actually enjoyed reading. Excellently written.

    Nice touch with the dynamic webpage light/dark mode change with OS settings

    Agreed that speed is a proxy for quality. Especially for the fickle user, which is almost all of them/us.

    Also I detest the new Photoshop Open dialog. Such a cow. Trying to create a New Document — equally unusable.

    Interesting how this subtle things make or brake an experience. Good article!
