No, it doesn't. It just takes a long time, because it's formatting a lot of text to try to fit it into a speech balloon.
I dunno, a few minutes.
It doesn’t take nearly that long for me
Is it mostly hardware dependent or it’s it mostly based on internet speed
I’m assuming hardware as it only takes a little over a second to get the data for me (sometimes slightly over 2)
I don't think queuing a web request takes a few seconds.
It depends on how fast the server processes things and how fast your internet and router are.
As you can see here, most of the time it takes to get the data from
