Discord needs a LITE version!

    We need this to be added! My 4GB PC is slow with Discord!

    Best of both worlds.
    Keep the single discord client but add an option under Advanced settings for a lightweight low resource optimized mode that only enables the bare essentials only.
    Reduce constant cpu and ram usage when enabled

    I definitely want this.  Without it rocket chat and mumble are becoming attractive.

    Please check that you dont have Hardware Acceleration (found under Settings>Appearance>Advanced) turned on, that could be what is causing your problem

    That is weird indeed. Thanks for letting me know. 2 years ago I installed the stable version and never installed or reinstalled anything, only letting it update. I never applied for a experimental/beta version or aything.
    What is also weird is that some of my friends are (like I said) experiencing the same.
    I have discord on my laptop that is about 3 years old, it has an i7 6500u. I too have Discord on my desktop, that has an i7 7700k. I'm only experiencing these "problems" on my laptop. I might just try to reinstall Discord. I'll post something with the results.

    actually discord has some minimal requirements and i dont think very low end pcs can run it so idk

    just use your browser

    Seriously? Discord is built on a platform known as 'Electron', this basically allows you to take a website and turn it into a desktop app, with some minor changes. Electron runs on the a simplified version of Google Chrome, so what you are saying is that there is a computer that is incapable to using Google Chrome...

    your systems are not "low end" a "low end" pc in 2019 should have around 8gb of ram, knowing that. a mear 800mb cap out of memory is hardly worth getting stressed over, however if your having issues with your gaming, find appearance tab and disable hardware acceleration then restart discord to remove its lag generating effect from your games. if that does not work then your cpu/mobo/ram amount in some combination render your computer out of date for modern games and not low end. sorry to be the bringer of bad news :(

    I don't really think this is a good idea, just use discord on your browser.

    Huh, that's weird...

    I'm running discord on a quite old laptop (2013 ish) with an i5 processor. The pc is fine for most things, including discord, which runs perfectly fine. I'm in 20-30 servers, all pretty big, and I have a couple of games installed. So I am not sure why the program runs so poorly on your machine... The only thing I could think of is that you have installed a non-stable version of discord, like canary, and have received a weird update that kills the performance. Maybe...
