Does anyone else use GBoard on their phone?

Gboard (Google Keyboard) seems to interact very poorly with the Kinja editor in Chrome. Doesn’t happen with any other browser or app or text entry platform except for the Kinja comment editor. When I try to edit already-written text (like, say, correcting typos) the cursor jumps around and inserts gibberish and duplicate words completely independently of my input.

Try to match my input in the above gif to what’s actually happening on screen and you’ll see what I mean. I replaced “to my liking” with “in a way that I want” and got a complete mess. Is anyone else experiencing this?
