    I don't know when they added it, but I just saw this in my Discord settings and it does hide the activity tab and store and everything. I just don't know if they truly don't load it or just hide it (not the same).

    Discord needs to slim down. 

    It never dumps its cache from whatever it downloaded in the past, and so on one system and on my phone I have Discord take up between 1-2 GB of drive space ... even though everything but the last page on any server or any channel is wasted. 99% of the time I do not scroll up. 

    RAM use is going through the roof. Just got a new laptop, installed a couple meters to keep an eye on ram, cpu, etc ... Discord by default using 802 MB of RAM ?!  
    Seriously: W H Y ?!  

    What the heck is going on that a chat app viewer now approaches 1 GIGABYTE of RAM right off the bat?

    Does discord use user's computers as "nodes"? Where it shares the user's computing power with other users?  This is the only rational explanation for the bloat that i can come up with.

    Yes please. I just uninstalled Discord from my computer cause it makes every game I play lag a bit, and make all voices robotic and impossible to understand.

    This would be perfect for people who don't need the full features of discord.

    Compare discord and telegram.
    Tg client uses 10x less Ram and much less Cpu time.

    So yeah, we need discord lite!

     I'd love to get one, it was so great to use when it was new on the market. Was pretty simple and direct, barely used any RAM so I instantly swapped to it from my old Skype. As the time passed it got so many new stuff, of course it is awesome and great and it works fine but for a second plan software isn't worth for me, even though I don't use any of it, dispite it being optional it still made the soft runs slow, I have friends that need to close discord and use in-game voice-chat cuz of FPS problems :/ 
     LITE VERSION, PLEASE!

    I came here from https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360032332111-Discord-LITE where discord staff were very assuring, as on here, that discord NEEDS to use the amount of RAM it's using. That is just not true. 

    See here 

     

    Discord is using 475,688K RAM, as much as a last-generation 3D game. I'm not in a voice or video call, discord is pulled up to an inactive chat I was having with someone yesterday. That's way too much, discord sitting idle should not be the most memory intensive program on my computer. Please focus on resolving the memory usage in discord, for now i'm going to have to close discord whenever I'm doing something memory intensive.

    Just checked on my laptop ... discord = 599 MB of RAM ?! 

    No chats, no game, no extra app goodies, nada ...

    For the a modern version of MIRC back in the day, where you can click servers, hop into channels, ... and it is one TEXT channel at a time, with maybe one or two pictures in the view port at a time.

    Why is this taking so much RAM?

    same for me i didn't do anything but discord uses alone 800mb of ram.
    i disabled now the game activity tab and the feed just to get a smoother experience....
    also why discord not use a 64 bit client is still out of my mind -.-*

    Personally, I NEED this feature, I dev bots, but I use a Raspberry Pi, so I need a small program that allows me to use Discord without taking 10 minutes to load.

    If discord wants to rise funds for keeping up the servers we gladly watch the ad for it but if its gonna ruin our gaming and make it lag then... at least make a pro version so we could buy or a lite version so we could play without lags

    I pretty much run Discord on the browser, Discord was turned into bloatware the moment they started adding all that store nonsense.

    I doubt they care and will ever release a light version.

    Same here, I just launch the desktop version whenever I need to get into a call, sadly all my friends keep using it. 
    Pretty sad, used to be an amazing software since it was really light to run and more comfy than teamspeak for example.
