I just downloaded a large file (the KyngChaos PostgreSQL package, an 8.5MB file).
In Chrome, it was downloading at less than 1KB/sec, and said it would take over an hour to arrive.
When I tried downloading it through wget, it downloaded at 60KB/sec and was ready in under a minute.
This is clearly an issue with Chrome rather than with my internet connection (I was running the two simultaneously), so what's going on?
I'm using MacOS Lion and Chrome 19.0.1084.52.
