There haven't been any popular browsers with the 32kb limit around since

There's certainly been a recent flurry of activity as this page has been
tweaked to meet pent up demand for an easy to edit TODO list, I have my
doubts the real limit here will be hit anytime soon.
The usual way to handle editing larger documents like this one with better
responsiveness is to edit section at a time, using the  buttons on
the right of each section rather than the one at the top. If you're not
doing that already that might help you out.
Not arguing against breaking it into sections (don't really care either
