New zoom slower

Description

Back when there was no animation during zooming, you could instantly zoom into a much higher magnification with a long scroll of the mouse wheel. Now, every magnification is treated as an event during which no new commands are read. That is, you have to wait a short time after each zooming event before you can zoom in again, making zooming a slower operation.

Now with the new map controls and the disappearance of the zoom scale, zooming is made further inconvenient.

Are there any benefits of this functionality? If not, can the old zooming behaviour be brought back?

What browser are you using? I don't see any noticeable lag when zooming with the scroll wheel with Firefox.

@nelg: as a workaround, currently, you could use e.g. http://owl.apis.dev.openstreetmap.org/ to view the map. The tiles are the same. There you also, currently, still have the zoom bar (which I like, too … feels not being lost that much). However, zooming with the mouse wheel is equally fast there for me (Firefox).

Closing as not reproducible given that I can't see any slow down and the reporter has not provided any further information about their environment.
