Google In addition to the Chrome 2.0 beta, work for the Linux version of Chrome is on its way. Its official name is currently "Chromium," and Google Chrome for Linux doesn't officially exist yet. For the sake of argument, however, Google Chrome for Linux is on its way whether it's currently in a Chromium and pre-alpha state or not, and now Ubuntu users can get a hold of Chromium to take for a spin. In this article, learn how to install the current build of Chromium to test on your Ubuntu or Ubuntu-based system and see several screenshots of the budding browser.

I don't know what might be wrong with my system. I have no addons installed for 3.1. Otherwise my system is a lot slower than yours, Intel T5500@1.66GHz and 1GB RAM. Anyway chromium on the same machine runs fantastically. Maybe your machine is just so fast you can't tell the difference.

Yeah it's smooth as butter in FF 3.0.7 for me too. I didn't realize that there is a sound effect for the gun though until trying it in Opera and Konqueror. Firefox doesn't render the sound effect on my machine.

I just tried it using Firefox 3.0.7 on Windows XP SP3 on an Acer Aspire One - very smooth; same situation with Archlinux and Firefox 3.0.7. There is obviously something very wrong with your setup.
