I have Chrome 13.0.782.220 m version and Windows 7 Proffesional. The problem is that when I open random site in new tab and then continue to scroll in the current site, the scrolling starts to lag big time. I must wait to load completely the new tab, and then continue to use/read the same site. I tried Smooth Scrolling extension and nothing. I have these extensions installed:

  1. Neat Bookmarks
  2. Adblock
  3. FlashBlock
  4. After The Deadline
  5. LastPass
  6. Clip to Evernote
  7. TabCloud
  8. WOT

and this apps (apps running in the background):

  1. Quick Note
  2. Read Later Fast

My HP ProBook 4510s laptop specifications are:

  • Processor :Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T5870 (2.0 GHz , 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)
  • Operating System :Genuine Windows Vista Home Basic 32
  • Chipset :Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset
  • System Memory : 3GBB (1 x 1024 MB + 1 x 2048 MB) DDR2 800 MHz ,Up to 8GB
  • Hard Drive :320GB 5400RPM SATA HDD
  • Display :15.6-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD anti-glare (1366 x 768 resolution)
  • Graphics :ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4330,512 MB dedicated video memory (1024 MB HyperMemory)
  • Audio :High Definition Audio support
  • Optical Drive :SATA DVD+/-RW SuperMulti DL LightScribe Drive
  • ...

I noticed that in about:plugins there is two or more plugins like Flash (Flash installation and built in Flash plugin in Chrome)...

So what is the problem here? I have no problem using Firefox (Aurora version), IE9 and Opera. Is something to do with the extensions or the plugins? I'm thinking switching back to Firefox because of this :S :\

Try disabling all extensions - or load the page in incognito mode. If it's fine then you have a extension problem – Sathya Sep 9 '11 at 8:56
@Sathya that's quite a good idea, I didn't think of that :D thanks – kvizii Sep 9 '11 at 9:13
Post an answer if you find the errant extension. BTW - I'd recommend you not use Smooth Scroll – Sathya Sep 9 '11 at 9:22

The errant extension appears to be LastPass.

I am on the same version of Chrome on Linux, and have been facing the slow, sluggish scrolling since LastPass's last update released a couple of days ago.

Disabling LastPass immediately fixes the slow scrolling issue for me.

LastPass has fixed this problem in the latest release. Thanks to LastPass team for the quick response to the support ticket I raised with them! – Rahul Sep 20 '11 at 17:07

I've been having scrolling issues for a while, and it got much worse after the last Chrome update, on both of my machines. Disabling the WOT extension made the problem go away for me.
