I'm largely in the habit of depending on Google Chrome as my primary web brower. On my Windows systems it works great, and also on my Chromebook (as you'd really expect). So naturally I want to use it with Bodhi as well. Having done my Bodhi 3.0 installation, I went to Google's site, downloaded the .deb, and ran dpkg to install. I discovered I had to add one library before the installation would complete. That done, I loaded up Chrome, signed in to my Google account, loaded Gmail, then a fresh tab with a video (YouTube embedded on another website). While watching the video I opened couple more tabs and suddenly everything slowed dramatically. The video came pretty much to a halt. In addition, my laptop fan cranked up, which it really hadn't done since the 3.0 installation. I closed Chrome and opened Firefox instead, and it's performance wasn't terribly impressive either.
Now I'm wondering if Chrome and whatever background services Google might install with it are sapping my laptop's performance and driving up the CPU temp. At the moment I'm back to Midori and fan speed is back to more or less normal.
Anyone else had a similar experience?
