chrome 64-bit: Very high CPU usage on Win 7 and gmail tab also uses over 800MB.

Pretty unusable!

@Amal Khailtash, I'm using Google Chrome Version 40.0.2209.0 dev (64-bit) for Linux right now and ran a test.

As soon I executed Chrome, I opened 3 more tabs (for a total of 4) and went on Twitter, Google News, Google home page, and Facebook on each tab respectively.

Initial Total CPU Usage by this version of Google Chrome was 48.2%.

After only 7 minutes times while keeping the same tabs opened, Total CPU Usage fell to 12.8%, an impressive 73.44% decrease, a large drop in a very short period of time. So, CPU Usage is *not* very high during the entire time using Chrome, only initially opening up those pages.

On other browsers I've tested (FF for example), the same tabs and pages opened resulted in a constant increasing CPU usage, quite poor performance actually. So Google Chrome does a great job (the best) in this respect.

Worst release yet, on my Windows 7 PC Version 40.0.2209.0 dev-m, all pages crash with an out of memory error despite having tons of the stuff.

It might be connected to the hardlink I have on the SSD C Drive over to the SATA D Drive as I am getting a message about network profiles despite the fact that my configuration is not using a networked drive

When chrome is running, my PC comes to a halt.

This version has broken compatibility with WinSplit Revolution for me. Chrome windows no longer respond to resizing shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+{1..9}. This is mighty inconvenient. Are these shortcuts taken by Chrome now?

Upon further testing it does not seem to be a problem with shortcuts. The shortcuts from WinSplit Revolution apparently take precedence, but it just cannot resize Chrome windows anymore.
