No, @Umbra means Bitwarden is less bloated and less targeted by hackers. ;)
By the way: good configuration!
Thanks.
But I want to switch to LP since it has push notification based 2FA for easy login.
Even 1 Click matching site is absent from BW. Then again, migration from LP to BW is a pain. I'm glad I sorted this issue out. And imported data is a success.

What kind of issues? Did you try build 137 or 167?
Apps and games were slower to launch. Had to rebuild ngen or assembly cache to get some improvements. Then again, my RAM module failed suddenly. So, I reverted back and performance was back to normal. I tried updating to 137 and installed new adobe flash and servicing stack really messed it up even on good RAM module. So, now even with spectre OS protection slowdown was minimal and barely noticeable.
