    Go to DroidForums on your Droid and try to make a post. Does anyone else notice the delayed responsiveness on the keys when typing. I find it kind of annoying and hope there's a way to fix this. This only happens when trying to type on a site through the browser. This is the only thing I find that isn't smooth/snappy on the device. If someone can find a solution it would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't see Swype anywhere in the Android market. Does it speed up the key responsiveness when typing on a forum through the browser? I really hate the delayed responsiveness.

    Textboxes on image-intensive forums have slower response rates. It sucks. :\

    Typing this message from my Droids right now. I'm not getting any lag.

    Actually I've never gotten lag while on the site and I don't use the mobile version.

    I'm not sure why you are experiencing this.

    Okay, how about this? Compare typing in a text message to typing on this forum. I'm sure you'll notice a difference in key responsiveness. BTW, I'm running 2.0.1 with my Droid overclocked at 800MHz. I saw the same issue before rooting.

    The Milestone browser has some lag in input boxes. I have a feeling thats what you are using. The increased scrolling performance and pinch-zoom makes it a worthwhile tradeoff.
