When I first signed up with Gmail, I was impressed by how fast I could search through my email. Now even simple single-keyword searches can take 5-10 seconds. Perhaps this is related to having over 70,000 conversations archived - but I don't want to delete them if I can avoid it. Are there any tricks to speeding up search time in Gmail?
You can try Cloudmagic extension for Google Chrome. It could speed up search in your case.
