I've observed formula-heavy pages such as this to cause Chrome on Android to stop responding. A dialog pops up stating that “Chrome isn't responding”. If I choose to “Wait”, it will pop up again a number of times. Eventually all the rendering may be done and the dialog will stay away, but I've also encountered pages (not the one above, don't recall which one it was) where this problem persisted for longer than I was willing to retry.
- Am I the only one seeing this, or is this a general problem?
- Is there anything Math Stack Exchange can do about this? Any config setting to make it play nicer with Chrome on mobile?
- Do you have any form of monitoring in place to detect how often this affects users? Not sure how such a thing could be implemented, would be non-trivial.
- Is there any workarounds that can be recommended to read these pages without rendering the Math? Since the page is non-responsive, any interaction with MathJax UI elements likely won't work, so it would have to be a URL edit or some such.
- Should we as authors try to avoid using so much MathJax that this problem might get triggered? How can we tell if we are using desktop browsers?
This is Chrome 107.0.5304.91 on a Google Pixel 5.
