NotScripts works in Chrome, albeit not as refined as NoScript(can't hide sites to untrusted category).

Is there actually anything such as a slow browser? Or are they all actually fast with only slight differences in speed?
Are there actually jobs at stake, or anything else that would lose money by not using a browser that isn't the fastest, extant?
Are there actually people that go to bed every night worrying that they may not be using the fastest browser in the known universe? Unfortunately, there probably are. More's the pity.

I think it's more of a concern for netbooks and tablets which are becoming more popular but are a couple generations behind in processing power so every bit helps.

Opera is where it's at. Opera Link FTW. Nuff said.

this.

But, even with the processing power of the average OCN rig which laugh at 1000+ tabs, Chrome feels snappier... I'm sure it's not my imagination!

Yet every other Chrome fanboy on OCN with a 4 GHz+ i7 and GTX 580's in SLI can't stop raving about how much faster Chrome is than any other browser.

Does not say if tests were done on a 32 bit or 64 bit OS ... or even which OS was used ...

I don't quite match the specs you mentioned but I swear that Chrome feels (and is) faster on my rig and on my underpowered Dell lappy.

I'm sorry, I never even considered that. I completely forgot about my netbook and now I'd best pay attention since I'm getting an ASUS Transformer.
Thanks for the heads-up.
