    When I want to highlight text from the internet, say from wikipedia, i would double click the trackpad (double tap for me) and enclose the said text. However, there's this annoying delay that lasts for about a second after I have highlighted my desired text and almost 50% of the time, I end up moving my trackpad - thinking the delay is over - when it isn't and so I end up over or under-highlighting. This doesn't happen on Windows and I don't understand why there isn't a simple option to change delay settings for the trackpad. :confused::confused::confused:

    I've noticed the same thing, it's very annoying. Don't have the same problem when using my mouse. No idea how to fix it.
