Will CloudFlare.com slowdown webchat Application?

#1

Hello.

We are having a PHP ajax chat script and we are thinking to use Cloudflare.
The chat script is not nood.js
It just refreshes the page.
Example of the chat script can be found in here

Will using Cloudflare slowdown the webchat script?

Thank you for your time

The slowdown should be minimal, generally only adds 50 milliseconds of delay and will probably work for your chat application. For example, the Discord instant chat application uses Cloudflare for everything other than voice chat.


Chances are this is due to rocket loader. If you use CF, and experience a white flash, try not to use rocket loader (explanation: Disabled Rocket Loader - Still getting a white flash?).
