Essential Grid - Long Load Times with Google Chrome


We are using essential grid as an e-commerce platform in combination with Woo Commerce:

We have exhorboritanty long load times with Google Chrome (14+). The load times are significantly faster with Mozilla firefox (4-6 seconds).

We have about 126 items in general inventory, but when I limit the grid’s source to a smaller selection of products our load times improves greatly.

This makes me think essential grid is loading the entire inventory upon the initial page visit instead of only the products initially visible (we have pagination set up).

Is this true? Is there any way to make Essential Grid only load the visible content?
