We are very pressed at work with the workload. I am beginning not to care WHY toad is so slow, and am working to move to SQL Developer. As I'm working throughout the day, I constantly run into connection lost and have to wait so long to get the cursor back it's frustrating. Then a refresh the connections, and THAT takes forever. Then I click on an object and loading it takes forever.
I'm simply getting to the conclusion that Toad is just too slow to deal with.
