javascript-driven text entry fields really clobber IITC Mobile #138

on android devices with tiny screens and touchscreen keyboards, having javascript so active in the chatbox textentry fields is a real performance killer.

and, it seems to screw up the onscreen keyboard's ability to highlight and edit in the text field...


The per-character input handling is redundant on Android, so might as well be disabled entirely.

I think there's other performance issues with chat too though - it can sometimes be quite sluggish on desktop too.

@jonatkins disable input "keydown" on smartphones - it's redundant there (no tab…
… key), breaks input editing, and has some impact on performance

fix #138
