    Glad to hear that. Sometimes it will kill extensions but it could be 'log-in' based ones like GMail ones. Let me know if you have anymore questions regarding Google Chrome/Chromium.
    Thanks. Funny how it goes. I hated the idea of Speed-dial when it came out in FF. Had to find out how to kill it right away. Now using it in Chrome I got hooked. I finally put it on both my FF browsers. Better home page than about:blank :)

    edit: seems snappy. Guess it should. Just running Speed-dial it has 8 processes going. :)
    Try unpinning any 'Chromium' pins you made on your taskbar and start menu.

    Then go to any shortcuts for Chromium you've made (desktop, start menu, etc) and add the following to the end of it (Put a space between .exe and the following):

    --enable-gpu-plugin --enable-gpu-rendering --enable-accelerated-2d-canvas --enable-accelerated-compositing --enable-video-layering --enable-webgl --enable-fastback --apps-panel --web-apps

    --enable-fastback seems beneficial. But the rest of it kills off my Speed dial on new tab. Anyway, I don't think my GPU is ballsy enough to benefit from acceleration. At least not in browsers. Maybe for software video players.

    edit: thanks for the options. I'll try various combos. Right now these seem to peacefully coexist: -enable-gpu-plugin --enable-gpu-rendering --enable-fastback

    Kills it for me as well. Though I have noticed a major boost in things since enabling the flags. Hopefully the new tab page will be fixed in the next few builds

    Any useful feedback yet?

    I found it annoying that the current GC stable version builds up on RAM usage when the browser is open for, like, an hour or more. In addition to that, when I click on a bookmark/type in an address and hit enter etc. and then immediately resize the browser window, the page which is loading does not adopt to the new window size, instead it just loads as if I haven't resized the window at all.

    Extensive usage of Flash produced choppiness and stuttering; its not as bad as in Firefox, where it completely freezes for a fraction of a second, but it is more constant (the best example for this? Playing JamLegend)

    btw- do you have a source for all the command line switches? Maybe with capsule descriptions?

    I wish, I generally find these things by going through Neowin and reading what people say regarding Chrome/Chromium.

    Yeah, there was a list on one of the Chrome forums, but it's ancient. Anyway, the combination I'm running seems pretty snappy. :)

    One good turn deserves another. I don't know if you do AutoHotKey but I hate that middle mouse click on a link opens a new tab in the background. So I did this ahk. When you middle mouse click on a link in Chrome, it sends Control Shift Left Click to open it in a new tab in the foreground:

    Code:
    SendMode Input
    
    #IfWinActive, ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_0
    MButton::
      Send, ^+{LButton}
    Return
    The line #IfWinActive, ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_0 restricts it so that the hotkey is only active when Chrome is the active window. Avoids interfering with other uses of Middle Click.

    It will also work with Speed-dial. The dial you middle click will open in a new foreground tab instead of replacing the Speed dial page.

    Thank you for that. That looks helpful. :)
