With the above test! I believe Tiddlywiki is really fast! Don’t think you?

I do think it’s fast. Somewhere around 5.1.23 > 5.2.x, TiddlyWiki made a huge leap forward in terms of speed.

My DOs and DONTs

  1. Do close the Recent tab after using it. I usually leave it resting at Open.

  2. Do close the Advanced Search tabs if they contain long lists of results.

  3. Don’t keep any long $list results open any longer than they are truly needed.

  4. Do use $eventcatcher to capture clicks in long $lists of links/buttons.

  5. Do use the Fold button on lengthy tiddlers that you need open but are not being used at the moment.
