Hopefully the RStudio IDE sets an option we can use when code is running in a notebook, that we can add to show_progress() (I am pretty sure it does).

Thanks to @jimhester
I spent hours to figure out why readr::read_csv was times slower than base::read.csv , let alone data.table::fread
I reinstalled readr and tried all kinds of things, until I found the post mentioned above. It is clear in hindsight that interaction between the progress bar and the notebook kills the efficiency.
The default should be disabling progress bar in Notebook environment.

Remove progress bars, minor dplyr edits
Removed from dplyr selects and added a progress=FALSE to the read_csv based on the following issue: tidyverse/readr#793
