When Chrome starts up fresh, the initial tab and any new tabs freeze for about 10-15 minutes, then suddenly start working. It's very frustrating. I've tried just about everything I can think of.

  • --disable--extension
  • removed /Application/Google Chrome.app
  • removed ~/Library/Application Support/Google

I'm out of ideas. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Chrome v55 and Chrome Canary v56. Mac El Cap and Sierra (just upgraded)

Deleting Chrome's cache should resolve this issue.

Delete this folder: ~/Library/Caches/Google/Chrome (make a backup first).
