apps slow to type into
1
Some apps are very slow to type into.  What I mean is, if I'm typing stuff like this, the characters lag and take a few seconds to appear on the screen.  The Chrome browser works fine.  The problem happens in other apps like Opera browser.  I'm on the beta channel.

Another problem is that when hovering over a tab in Chrome browser, some other tabs flicker light/dark.  I don't know if it's related.

Both problems started a few weeks ago I think.

After following Mike's recommendations, you can try to find the problem yourself by working through these steps:
 
The usual cause of "slow" issues, is one or more extensions causing problems, flags that you may have altered, too many tabs open, you haven't completely turned off your Chromebook recently, you are low on storage space, or you have too many extensions installed.
  1. Reboot your Chromebook, don't just close the lid, every night.
  2. Reset all flags. Flags are really intended for the Google engineering/development team, not end users.
  3. Delete or disable unneeded extensions. Or, do a Browser Reset to disable them all.
  4. Keep the number of open tabs to a minimum, especially if you are doing something where performance matters.
  5. Make sure that you have adequate (more than just a few GB) of available space on your internal storage.
  6. Check your internet speed. I like speedof.me  or speedtest.net as a test. Compare to what you should be getting from your internet provider.

It's just the Android apps, I can't figure out the root of the cause but the slow typing issue only happens in Android based app, resetting flags, or rebooting clears it temporarily but as you work in the Android apps longer, the slow typing eventually happens over and over, and it's not like after a day of using it, it's typically within minutes. It is super frustrating when you are trying to type a document. This needs to get looked at very soon

Flags are intended for all users who are willing to use them responsibly and with caution.  Nevertheless I appreciate your suggestions. They didn't work for me, but perhaps they will be useful for someone else.
