This all has to do with your computer and internet connection! I recommend using Google Chrome also.

No it's not. Lag exists on this site because for some reason chess.com does not use time stamping and you lose several seconds due to lag which is very meaningful in bullet. I think chess.com is probably the best chess site and everything else works very nicely apart from the lag. This is especially noticeable when playing against North-American players who have much smaller lag compared to European players. So I would assume that the servers are situated in North America.

I think something's wrong with the website specifically, because my internet works perfectly but for some reason, as of late, it's been crap on this website

Bullet is unplayable I lose games on time while my opponent still has 53s left on the clock. I'm moving instantly or using premove but I lose 1 or 2 seconds every turn 30 moves into the game = loss. I am rated 500 bullet. My OTB rating is 125 ECF or roughly 1600. Blitz 1400. Rapid 1450 standard 1600. Bullet 500!!
