Thank you very much for your valuable feedback!
The responsiveness and stability of the controls in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite is one of the top priorities during the last two Qs and you can see that we have invested a solid time and men power in improving ones of the most most widely used and popular controls as the RadGrid, RadEditor and RadScheduler and others. RadGrid has only 13 open issues in the PITS system. This effort is also mentioned as a big story in the controls' Roadmap page
I examined the logged issues for the Ajax controls in PITS system and noticed that 1/3 of the open issues in the PITS system apply to RadEditor. In Q1 2013 we have fixed almost all reported bugs for Paste from Word and many more related to its content filters and links creation mechanism. In the Q2 2013 release the editor will feature improved Indent/Oudent, Justify and Insert Odered / Unordered lists commands, which will eliminate automatically many of the reported bugs. For Q3 2013 we plan to rewrite the Bold, Italic, Underline and other popular commands so that they produce consistent content in x-browsers.
We will revisit soon all logged bugs in the PITS system and update their status. Some of them are already fixed or not reproducible with the latest version of the controls. We will start with the most voted ones and try to fix them in the upcoming releases. If this is not possible, we will delete the items and post a comment with a workaround or explanation why the bug cannot be fixed.
We do understand that the controls stability is quite important for all clients and we will continue to improve them in the future even more visibly.
