Until recently, I thought Internet Explorer had become the most sluggish browser in the last few months. However, I can now say that Google Chrome is just as much of a POS browser as IE8 as I have been running into "unresponsive plug-ins" on this crummy browser that touts itself as being lean, smooth, and fast. I have now been forced to using Mozilla Firefox on my laptop computer as it is the only one left on this machine that can browse decently. Any thoughts?

Obviously there's something in your computer that Chrome doesn't like, considering everyone else says it's pretty fast.

No, as a browser, FireFox is better than Google Chrome, the reason I using Google Chrome is just its extensions.

How many plugins/extensions are you running? I'm using Chrome almost exclusively and have no issues for the most part. However, I have noticed that if I RDP in to one of my other computers I will run in to this problem. Some of the reasoning behind this is Chrome now has GPU acceleration built in. If you are doing something graphically or CPU intensive, this may be causing the problem. I would suggest you test turning it off and see if it improves the performance.

Welcome back, hackman2007! Long time no see! Anyway, whatever the problem was, it also seemed to have affected my Norton 360 as well. I had to use Norton Power Eraser to eliminate the problem and now I rarely see any unresponsive plug-ins in Google Chrome. As for extensions, I am running none of them. I already know that a browser's available extensions can trip the browser itself up, given enough time. Thanks for the suggestion, though!
