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?

Perhaps that's an issue with Jelly Bean, considering that all devices on which Thom has encountered this issue ran Jelly Bean?

No major issue with Chrome on ICS for me either, I can only confirm the autocompletion lag. Actually, Firefox felt much slower on my "slow" 1GHz single-core phone with 512MB RAM.

I used to be a Dolphin user due to its wondrous performance and independence from Google, but for some reason it has started to freeze and crash a lot after some updates a few months ago.

That doesn't appear to be the case, my Galaxy Nexus is running JB and doesn't exhibit the issue Thom's describing.

Indeed. Perhaps an SoC-specific issue as others are suggesting, then, if all Tegra device owners can confirm the issue...
