Google Back when I reviewed the Nexus 7, I mentioned that I was disappointed with Chrome for Android. It often felt slow, would hang, and typing in the address bar and input fields on webpages would lag. Scrolling wasn't always optimal, and sometimes, it would simply freeze up altogether. We're several months down the line now - has the situation improved for me?

Really?

Not that it helps you, but Chrome is smooth for me on both my Galaxy Nexus and my Xoom. I can't recall it ever freezing. I wonder if others are seeing this or if it's something specific to your device (or more generally, the Nexus 7).

Same here, this post had me scratching my head for that exact reason (also on Galaxy Nexus).

I have both the galaxy nexus and the Nexus 7. On my galaxy nexus performance of Chrome is quite acceptable(although not as fast as the plain browser). On my nexus 7, it freezes during the initial seconds of loading any web page. Why would a quad core tablet struggle where my much older dual core phone not?

Been wondering this for a while...

Seems better than wat Thom describes on my Nexus 7 as well. Sure, heavy sites like The Verge are quite laggy, but sites like OSNews are fast and smooth.
