At the same time, we constantly work on ReSharper performance improvement, but some problems can only be solved by taking ReSharper out of the process. This is a massive architectural challenge and will take some time. The progress can be tracked here:

I finally gave up on Resharper, some 15 years of using it no less.  Couldn't deal with the terrible performance with larger solutions.

Moved to Coderush, having a better time with it so far.

It is impossible to use resharper especially projects like xamarin.forms. it is super slow, freezes the ui and crashes the Ide. i have just relieved after disabling it especially for Xaml. There are free open source tools doing better than resharper and such sad to see that we have to pay a lot of money to waste our precious development time for resharper.

Same here, it is impossible to use ReSharper now. We have a couple of visual studio solutions with more than 150 projects. I can't even open those solutions with Resharper enabled. Visual studio either hangs or crashes. So we have to make smaller sub-solutions to work. But whenever we have to build or make entire solution wise changes, which is very frequent, one has to disable ReSharper before proceeding. This is so annoying, and with heavy heart, if I find anything close to ReSharper, I'll be saying goodbye to this great product. And if you guys think that the user has to go through tens of preference adjustment, both in VS and Resharper, before he/she can use your product, that is absurd. By the way, I use a decent office laptop Lenovo T-480 with 32 GB ram to work.

How many of these comments are real.. and how many have been added by Microsoft since they are scared of Jetbrains new and very nice IDE that competes with Visual Studio? For that matter.. if they are real.. is it Visual Studio or Resharper's fault that it's slow? Note that it's much slower now than it used to be...

Mczarnek, I know mine is real, and I'm not a M$ employee, but I guess anyone can say that with no way to verify it.  I follow this thread after I posted a while ago, and I see a new comment every month or so as posted.  Rider is a great IDE but I can't use it because the lack of fully-implemented TFS integration, so I struggle along with Resharper and Visual Studio, because although it's slow and it hangs frequently, I'm not willing to give up the features that Resharper adds to Visual Studio.

@Mczarnek how do we know that your comment is real, and that you're not someone from Jetbrains trying to deflect the genuine concerns of frustrated customers onto Microsoft?

It is true that this problem has pushed me onto Rider, and I'm happier with Rider than I was on Visual Studio.

Touché

It's true.. wish something like www.frink.global (full disclosure: my actual company) was already more popular that would allow us to figure out who to trust online.

There is no need to invent a conspiracy here, the performance of the VS addon sucks. You know it, M$ knows it, and JetBrains knows it. Jet brains is working on it, end of story.
