I'm running into increased problems when playing YouTube videos in Chrome... and it seems more pronounced since upgrading to Mavericks. For example, I use Google Chrome for my web use. If I'm watching a YouTube video (in one window) and surfing the web (in another window), any "heavy" web usage or surfing causes my YouTube video to struggle. In my mind... the computer is fighting memory resources and the YouTube video is losing. In short, it is no longer playing smoothly. Sound & video are choppy. My solution? I opt to watch YouTube videos in Safari WHILE using Chrome to surf the net. So, maybe this is a Chrome issue... primarily... but more pronounced with Mavericks. Does anyone else deal with similar issues? Has upgrading to Mavericks made it worse? Got another solution? Thanks.
