Recently I've been having a lot of trouble with Chrome's download speeds. Upon starting up, everything is fine. However after a few minutes, ping latency and download speeds slow down to a crawl.

The strange thing is, upload speeds are fine and other browsers seem to do fine.

Chrome (20.0.1132.47 m on Windows 7): enter image description here

Firefox: enter image description here

This has been reproduced a number of times. It's very odd. Anyone have any idea as to what might be causing this?

Really weird. Maybe it has sth do do with the settings like max. parallel number of downloads etc. You can install Fiddler and try to figure out something perhaps by observing the behaviors in the session list. –  jakub.g Jul 5 '12 at 23:36
