How can we improve Yahoo Finance?

Speed up the web page

I'm a long time fan who has started seeking quotes elsewhere because for some reason the Yahoo Finance page has become very slow. I really like the functionality and hope this can be fixed.

    I agree for the last several months the portfolio pages are taking more time. I can't tell if its data or graphical related, but something is cranking in the background. In some cases you would think the servers would be overloaded, but I wouldn't suspect that here unless you are having some sort of pipe troubles. I use your service daily, hopefully you can resolve the issue.

    Recently (since ~10.2018), Yahoo Finance charts consume an exorbitant amount of CPU resources. I've noticed the same issue on both desktop and tablet, and with both Firefox and Chrome.

    Reproduce the issue by visiting any chart page such as: https://finance.yahoo.com/chart/AMD

    The issue appears to be related to GPU resources and the Yahoo Finance chart widget. Viewing any chart in either Chrome or Firefox causes an immediate ~20% spike in GPU resource usage per widget (two charts open --> 40% GPU resources consumed).

    Chrome Info: Chrome/71.0.3578.98, Windows NT 10.0.17134, GPU 0: VENDOR = 0x8086, DEVICE= 0x591b (Intel), GPU 1: VENDOR = 0x10de, DEVICE= 0x134d (NVIDIA) *ACTIVE*, Vulkan API 1.1.0, NVIDIA driver: 398.36

    Launching chrome with `--disable-gpu` leads to similar poor performance with each chart widget consuming about 10% CPU on a I7-7700HQ (3 charts visible ~30% CPU, 2 charts visible ~20% CPU, etc...).
