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?

I wonder if this is a Tegra 3 chipset problem because I see the exact same behavior on my Transformer Prime tablet.

Perhaps Chrome somehow triggers an expensive swap from the one low power core to the high power quad cores at a very unfortunate time.

Or perhaps the Tegra 3 is lacking RAM or mass storage bandwidth.

I'll add my experience to that. On the original Transformer with the Tegra 2, Chrome suffers the same sluggishness and buggy behavior that Thom described, along with the occasional force close. Firefox, the built in browser and Opera do not suffer these issues.
