If you haven’t tried the portal in a while please give it a try.
Performance has been a key area of feedback and one where we have been focusing much of our efforts. We’ve been improving performance across all areas, specifically focusing on portal startup, performance of resource blades, and core portal experiences (like All resources). Measurements were done based on real usage (using telemetry) across all users and geographies. We tracked median and 95 percentile for each focus area.
As a result, you will enjoy of a faster experience with the portal. A few numbers:
• We improved portal startup +50%
• On average we improved resource blade (Web App, VM, and SQL) load +300%
Feel free to open new ideas for specific areas where we can continue to improve performance.
Click on Create resource and 5 minutes now with no response

Still having major slowness with respect to Azure/Enterprise Applications. Can't get the apps to load, receiving "Error Occurred" messages, and of course, nothing on the status pages. At this point, 5 years later, it's obvious this is not a priority to Microsoft.
Do people really pay you for this piece of junk?
what a nasty user experience and slowness. why the **** do you guys even exist with azure? just because you have money and you built some ****?
The portal is still really slow! To the point of being unusable.

I would not hesitate to say, the azure portal is slow; click on a link, wait for 30 seconds, it does not load; click on the same link again, now it works.

We call Azure the SLOTH, because it so so Slow. I;'ve been using azure for one year now, and coming from other clouds like AWS and GCP, Azure is by far the slowest for portal response.
Man, it's super slow to manage my portal. PLEASE FIX IT!!
Erik Eriksson commented
Its unbearable to work with some parts of the portal. I get so frustrated I just stop what Im trying to do and do something else. The page doesnt load in several minutes, if at all. Please fix it. Just stop what you are doing and fix the portal.
Portal is almost unusable these days. Huge negative impact on productivity. Please address!
Resource creation/deletion/updates are really slow and may affect team operations. A real big window of opportunity is here.
Maher Ali commented
the portal is so slow and unusable, moving a resource to another group could take like forever.
I noticed that doing any operation on the protal like deleting the resource doesn't consolidate the view, the resource is still there for minute, disappears and then refreshing the view will show it again.
I believe those who are doing the event sourcing need urgent help in their work :)
WTF happend to the promise of availability? Warned not to create VM region/zone, might not work? How am I supposed to deliver premium low-latency services to my customers?
My first work experience with Azure was 2017. Back then I was really disappointed of how slow the portal was. Since then I've been working with Google Cloud Platform and now I need to work with Azure again.
All I can say is that GCPs "Cloud Console" is way more responsive than Azure Portal and maybe more important GCP is way faster than Azure.
Deleting a resource group here takes to long (WTF 1min)? And where is the indicator that job is going on?
It feels a bit like working with Microsoft Dynamics 365. Worst UX I ever touched... (probably some shared components?)

It takes 30-60 seconds to update any change. Could you be kind and drop 0 from these figures, please?
Jim Barr commented
2020, February, STILL very slow, almost unusable.
It doesn't update in real time. It's a joke. Tells me to wait ten minutes. So you can't be sure what the status is of anything.
Feb 2020, still takes multiple minutes to navigate pages... when it doesn't silently fail and you wait for a page to fill in and it never does.
Jason Wisener commented
Still terribly slow. 5+ mins to just swap one az function azure slot
Like Pelle said: Still too slow, it’s a pain to use! Waiting minutes over minutes that task get finished.
