The pdf viewer in chromium edge lags a lot whenever I open a PDF with lots of images and colours.

It almost stops responding on PDF with high quality.

 

With the introduction of smooth scroll in pdf, lag has increased, it takes almost 3-5 secs to draw a page after the scrollbar stops. And even it consumes a lot of CPU. 

 

Why don't you guys divert this scroll rendering load to GPU, as it consumes a lot of CPU (15-20 %) and negligible GPU. I am on AMD A6 APU processor and I don't think its a problem with graphics card or something else as chrome handles pdf very smoothly.

 

Also whenever opening a large pdf, start rendering it from page 1 instead of waiting it to completely load which is the current approach.

I also get lag while Edge renders the PDF, though it is not for 2-3 seconds.

@Rohit Yadav I would really appreciate the Firefox pdf. Its much better and advanced in this regard.

I don't know what is the feature set of the PDF Reader in Firefox, but may still not be having features that the PDF Viewer in Edge has. Anyway let's not turn off-topic and let the team resolve the issue.
