Drawing borders around or having a background-color on very large elements (elements that take up multiple screens) can reduce the editing speed.

Sorry I missed that one. I have had quite a fast computer for a few years now so these issues are very much reduced for me and I have to perform fairly extreme stress tests to see them. In my case the element has to span about 25 screens before I start to notice this issue.

If you are drawing a white border then I suspect you must also have a different background-color set for some parent element. If that element commonly spans multiple screens then that could be contributing.

The colour itself does not matter.
