I've recently converted to Linux (Ubuntu 11.04) and installed Google Chrome (not chromium). To my surprise it works very slow. The firefox included in the ditro is much faster (2-4 times as fast, sometimes more) - consistently.
Strangely enough, a chrome running in a Windows 7 VM (virtual box, NAT bridging) is working much faster as well - just as fast as I was used to before going the linux way.
Why? How can I fix the linux chrome?
Details: Ubuntu 11.04, up-to-date. Linux chrome: 13.0.782.218. Windows chrome: 13.0.782.218 m. No proxy.
