We are experimenting with additional improvements to the Speedy Lookup feature in Insiders Fast. Due to these changes, Fast users will not see the Lookup speed-up that Production users see today for a period of time. The data we will gather during this time is critical for us to get these new changes right. When we have completed our experimentation we will introduce Speedy Lookup to Fast and inform you that we have turned it back on. We apologize for any inconvenience and deeply appreciate your continued participation.
