Congratulations on great work! Alas Chrome had been unusable for me on Linux for the last couple of months... but this post just spurred me to find out why. Turned out my bookmark file was large - 6,000 items - with one particular bookmark (ironically an official Google blog entry on making your website faster) having gone forth and multiplied over 5,000 times. (perhaps aided by a bug in an unstable version?) The unfortunate and frustrating effect being that, on installing Chrome on a new computer - something I've done several times recently - everything would work fine until the sync kicked in. At which point opening or closing tabs would go 100% CPU for over a minute. It's only now in trying to save my bookmark file to try out this new version that I discovered the problem. Happy to be back!
