It slowed down the load time and the scrolling is laggy.

Quick ICS browser seems faster and works with flash. I have yet to see the benefit of chrome. Plus I really like quick controls. Best idea ever. Sometimes I try and use it on my homescreen since it would just make sense. Then I end up moving my maps icon....

I still think the stock Jelly Bean browser is faster than Chrome. I'd rather use that. I do like some chrome features though, like swiping the screen to change tabs. Maybe I'll give chrome another try after this update.

I updated Chrome yesterday and I do see a boost in speed. Phonearena loads a few seconds faster than before.
