I'm just speaking to the specific issue where animated gifs didn't use to make
the browser completely unresponsive just by appearing on the page as they often
do now. I can be scrolling down a web page and even before I see the gif, the
color spinning wheel will appear for a random amount of time and then the
screen will eventually finish scrolling the gif on to the screen. Then with
really big animated gifs, sometimes everything remains sluggish with more
spinning wheel until I scroll the gif off screen or leave the page. Shouldn't
need the latest unreleased OS to manage basic 20 year old web tech properly.
Whatever the case, they need to apply the fix to current versions of the OS
that the bug affects. It can't be that difficult to resolve.
