More visual feedback please!
Currently many Discourse sites appear slow or perhaps slightly unresponsive to user actions.
For example if a user switches between

The process should be:
- Visual indicator to user to let them know their action will be attempted.
- Process the user action.
- Optionally let the user know data has been has been received.
- Render the update.
let the user know data has been received because currently there is a rendering delay on many devices.
