The squeezed text is impairing IDLE's usability for teaching purposes.  Typing help() on any built-in type such as str immediately results in a squeeze-button rather than displaying help.  The same is true for showing lines from a file read or from a URL.

I recommend showing the first 50 to 100 lines and then squeezing the remainder.

Also, I think this may be the logic that is slowing down successive print calls in a loop.  Try running:

    for i in range(500):
        print(i, sep=' ')

or even:

    for i in range(500):
        print(i, i**2)

The output has noticeably slow delays between successive print() calls.
