You know, back in the day with dial up and DSL, the speed just wasn't there to keep up and you could click through and kill a bunch of ships before the page would load. Now with the higher speeds it moves too fast. So I googled up some info and here is a potential work around to help slow you down to speed you up. I am a PC type guy, so these are for couple browsers on it.

Firefox: Click the three bars at top right (applications menu)-- select 'More Tools' --- select 'Web Developer Tools' --- *this will probably pop up menu on bottom of screen-- along top of that pop up, click on 'Network' then on the right hand side look for 'No Throttling' click on that and select one of the options- 3G or so to make your pages load slower. Just remember to put it back to 'no throttling' when you are done.

Chrome: Similar- Click on 3 dots, select 'More tools' -- select 'Developer tools' -- look for Network along top of new menu and select it- look for 'No throttling' on top of a new menu- select it and change to 3G or one of the others to see what works best for ship killing. Remember to change back to 'no throttling' when done.

Edge: oh I hope you aren't using Edge.

Others- you'll have to figure it out yourself, you can add to the post in case someone else has that browser.

So what I've been doing on that front is putting an SL tab in it's own window, and then ctrl+clicking my way through the list. This opens the kill windows in new tabs and doesn't cause any reloading to happen on your current window.

Then I can just close out the whole window to kill all the tabs at once.

Now with 93% less edge and teenage angst

Much as I don't love making it easier to give someone else a bad day, I do like making it easier to play the actual game. H911Reiver's suggestion is what I would do, though I'd middle click instead of control clicking; so his is better ;).

Space combat in particular I feel should be able to be more engaging and less reliant on menus and browser tabs - ideally without introducing extra work that wasn't there before. I have no specific plans for improvements (did try to work with comet ages ago without success, now we have websockets instead).

One goal I have is that you see other ships moving even if you don't move yours/refresh the page. One thought I'd had was to use a click menu on the screen without taking you to another screen to dig through a list; the list affords some current defensive gameplay though which I'd have to factor into any changes (even if we discard it, it should first be considered).
