    As per title thread, is the last Flash update making your browser choppy when a Flash based ad is playing? Using Chrome whatever-version-it-is-now.

    Pages load slowly until the ad finishes loading , sometimes they even timeout and scrolling is choppy when the ad is visible. Net connection seems fine according to speedtest.net :confused: Is it just me?

    Nope, not just you - i've been noticing it streaming music off youtube pod casts and browsing. using waterfox and scrolling up and down pages it stutters and takes a second for things to register a click

    mmm... I think it's a memory leak thing or something. With 1 or 2 tabs I'm good. Open a third and everything goes slowpoke.
