"The performance of Giggle is rather poor, especially considering that the underlying tool has a definite focus on speed.
[giggle] can sometimes take up to ten seconds.
When scrolling through history, Giggle will just pause and eat CPU for a while."
I've had the same experiences with the commandline interface alone. Sometimes without consuming much in the way of cpu, disk, or network resources it will still pause for 5-10 seconds.
