High CPU usage

Hello, I’ve noticed recently that my CPU has been working overtime on my laptop recently, causing my laptop battery to drain more quickly. When I investigated, it turns out that OGS is using way more CPU than any other tab. Reloading the tab did not help, though putting the tab in the background does. I’m on Mac OS X Catalina (10.15.1), running latest Chrome (Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)).

Normally, I like to keep that tab visible on the Overview page, so I can see when it’s my turn in a correspondence game.

Did something change recently to cause the increased CPU usage?



Nothing intentional, but I have been fiddling with a fair amount of the board code, I might have introduced something by accident. A quick gander at the performance tab does seem to indicate more busy blips than I would expect, I’m suspecting my recent clock updates.

I’ll look into it more after I get through this next batch of AI updates. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
