Arc’s slow and using a lot of my device’s resources

Arc's using too much RAM/Memory/CPU, draining my battery, and/or causing my device to overheat. Websites and/or actions in Arc lag.

Performance and stability are top priorities for us and we're working hard to push out fixes to make Arc faster and more reliable.

If you’re able to identify a specific action or process that directly causes or contributes to the issues you’re experiencing please send us an urgent bug report in Arc (Command-T > type “report bug”) and a trace.

Here’s how you send a trace:

  • Head to Help > Troubleshooting > Record Trace in the Mac Menu Bar.

  • In the box, give a quick description of what’s slow and select “15 seconds”, and “Start Tracing”

  • For the 15 second Trace, perform the action that feels most slow (e.g. switching tabs, loading a webpage, or scrolling). It’ll send us some diagnostics automatically.
