Chrome has gotten so slow and uses so much memory. I downloaded the lastest Opera this morning and tried it on Gmail and Picasaweb. It was much faster and left a lot more free memory! When composing a message in Gmail I didn’t notice any loss of functionality.
Chrome was so fast and a joy to use when it was new. What has happened to Chrome? And why?
[Update Sat 2013-08-17 05:19:34 -0400: Just to be clear, I haven’t actually switched to using Opera. I still use Chrome as my primary browser. However, as a minimalist, I like simple, clean and fast. I’ll give Chrome a “clean,” but I don’t think it’s simple or fast now.]
