Google Chrome is the only program on my computer that can freeze my mouse. When loading multiple tabs at once, the mouse pointer will become unresponsive, and nothing is moving on my screen. I've never seen any other program do this. My PC usually emits a little beep when it's done thinking.
This happens on Windows 7 on every single computer that I own. I don't own expensive hardware, but I have Core i3's and i5's with plentiful RAM. I know that Chrome runs as multiple processes (one for each tab I believe.) Could this cause the issue? Are the processes running at a higher priority than, say, the mouse drivers?
This isn't a huge problem, but I am curious about the technical reasons that cause this phenomenon.
