I was wondering if anybody else is having issues with Chrome lately on Fedora or linux in general.
Chrome used to be super zippy, but now it seems to have a very annoying lag that happens every few seconds. This is mainly only noticeable in Youtube and due to this lag it's impossible to watch any video smoothly. When I run Youtube in Firefox it works fine.
I know that Chrome uses its own built-in flash support, so I am now using the html5 trial on YouTube which fixes the problem for the most part but not all videos work with html5 yet.
This is the main issue, but I have noticed a general slow down when closing tabs and sometimes even typing gets stuck for a while so it can't only be flash.
I'm using Fedora 17 64 bit with onboard Intel graphics and using Chrome Version 20.0.1132.57.
Any suggestions on how I could fix this? I have tried clearing my cache which is suggested on some sites for this issue on OS X, but it didn't help at all.
