Hi all,
 
I've been dealing with this pretty annoying issue with Chrome for a while now.  It runs extremely slowly and outright freezes with barely any windows/tabs open.  I don't care if I have 5 tabs open and one of them is YouTube or Pandora and that I have a couple of extensions.  That's not normal and it should not be running this slowly.
 
FYI, I already ran ADW and JRT.  It helped a little, but it's still happening.
 
Thank you!
 
Tony

Have you tried using any other browsers just to confirm the problem is a general issue? There have been instances were chrome works on majority of users but not on similar situations of yours. It could be an underlying problem with thermal events, slow internet connection or a hard drive issue itself.

Yes, Firefox works fine.  It's so weird.  Chrome is practically unusable.

Have you tried uninstalling it and then re-installing it? It could be that the something is corrupted in the current installation.

Also, does it get any better if you leave Chrome open for a while? As a combo question, how often do you use Chrome? The reason I ask this is because my installation of Chrome will take forever to open pages when I first open it even when I only leave a few pages/tabs open (although on at least one computer, I do have a couple dozen pages/tabs open), but after some time it will work fine. I have realized that this is likely caused by Chrome updating itself prior to trying to open the pages as I currently don't use Chrome that much, so there is a rather high chance that it needs to be updated.

Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled.  It actually almost seems to get worse the longer it's open.  And I would use Chrome very often - all of the time as a matter of fact.

Have you tried creating another user account, logging into that user account, and trying Chrome in that user account to see if anything is different?

Disable unnecessary Plugins and extensions. They can really  slow down the performance of Chrome and make it sluggish.

Clearing the browsing data daily seems to help speed up my Chrome. (Ctrl + H)

 

Insufficient amount of RAM maybe?
