I don't know why my Chrome run very slow after I upgraded my PC to Windows 7 RC. I tried the version 1 and now version 2 (, but no luck! Before that, I used it with W7 Build 7057, it run very smooth and fast. Anyone get this problem?

CHROME Developers, read this.

For me Chrome have problems to open different links from a site [ <--- have a look inside].Almost at 50% try rate, it hapends that Chrome is oppening the link,from the site above, or not oppening at all. When I try with IEx 8 the site is responding very fast and opens the links.

Since a few weeks I always receive a sad face after loading my favorite (Belgian) newspaper site: The site loads fine with both firefox and IE7. I did not experience the problem when I was still using Chrome 1.0, so it seems to be a regression. Someone else experiencing the same problem?

Apart from this problem, I really love this browser. Keep up the good work!

Same problem here... but not only with the chat, but with all Facebook. Takes a lot to load it, and the "loading animation" (little circle in the tab) never stops now, with some webs different from Facebook too.

I'm using Chrome
In Windows XP, scroll speed is great, very fast.
However, in Windows 7 RC build 7100, it's not as fast as it is in Windows XP.

I'm not sure that is problem of Chrome, perhaps it's Win7 RC's problem. However, please check it again for performance tuning, development team.

I love Chrome speed.

conchip: As a matter of fact IExplorer 8 is faster when it comes to row websurfing and not benchmarkning.
Diego indeed, that cursor animation waiting to get answer from different links/pages where information is stored ia very annoying.

@dmt: I still love render speed of Chrome, very light and fast.
I don't think IE8 can have advantage over Chrome, from speed perspective.
