Default Chrome Browser Lash

At least 50% of the time, Chrome has a really bad lag. The screen scroll doesn't follow my finger. When it does, there is a blank or black page. I have to move back up the page to get the remainder to load.
Chrome has this issue on my other devices, as well - but not this bad

I agree, Chrome is pretty bad. It just crawls when there's more than a couple of pics on the page.
I wish we could get ICS Browser+ on JB.

Sorry, that should be "lag" in the title. Blame Swype!

I have thought to myself that Chrome on the Nexus is not as fast as it could be. (The Nexus 7 zips right along...there's no reason for the browser to be such a slowpoke.) Heck, I would take the generic stock browser from gingerbread. Tried Maxthon but it crashed a lot. There are several things I like about chrome though, so I'll take it. If anyone knows how to speed it up, that would be great. What about turning graphics off?

Chrome seems super fast on my Nexus 7, certainly faster than any browser on my Samsung Galaxy S2 including Stock browser, Chrome beta and Dolphin HD.

I have only really used it on wifi though.
