Adding a Fixed Background Causes Slow Scrolling on Chrome

I’ve noticed that when I have a fixed background, my site scrolls very slow on Chrome. To see what I mean, take a look at my site ( and compare in Chrome and Safari. I don’t seem to experience that lag in Safari.

How can I improve this for Chrome?

Hey Zach,

Are you on an older Macbook Pro 15" model? I’ve experienced the same thing. On every other device/browser though I don’t have any issues. Even on windows Chrome it scrolls beautifully. Glad to hear I’m not the only one that’s had that happen.

Site’s looking great! :smiley:


I’m on a Retina Macbook Pro 13". I’m also glad to know someone else is experiencing this. Do you have any ideas of what could be causing this?

Thanks! :smile:


Hey @zackrabie what year is your Macbook Pro? I’m using a 15" mid 2012 with 8gb of RAM. I know that the team was looking into it. We shall see. :slight_smile:
