    Jeez. It already routinely hogs more than half the RAM on my work desktop and grinds everything to a halt. Now it wants more?

    On one hand, I have 8GB of RAM on my system, so this sucks. On the other hand, I appreciate that Google's trying to clean up Intel and AMD's mess by protecting its users more thoroughly. I guess we'll just have to see the end results when it's released.

    I really don't see Chrome affecting the way my laptop runs. But then again I don't really use my laptop for much other than surfing and the occasional Photoshop, spreadsheet, etc.

    One of the news websites that I frequent, however kicks the processor from around 8-10% usage to 80% or more. It's a poorly designed and will automatically refresh every minute as well. So if you're scrolling to read articles, it will refresh and kick you back to the to of the site.

    Quote changed to reflect my system.
    Because Chrome can and does grind my system to a halt when it decides not play with WoW :ua:

    I just switched to Firefox. Fast as hell. Chrome has really taken a step backwards.
