Anyone see how much quicker the new stable release of Chrome is compared to the new Safari? On my retina MBP its way faster loading pages, crazy fast compared! Im not sure why it can load pages so much quicker, but even the most basic of pages come up way faster on the new Chrome.

I did a test on several different pages and Chrome kicked Safari's butt on loading pages, some almost instantaneous.

another I'm noticing is that with flash safari eats memory like no one's business. Comparing three or four windows safari vs chrome I'm seeing 2.5gb free vs 4.4gb while running chrome. The other thing is that on the rMBP safari is still "smoother" if you're a scroll-aholic, but chrome has superior ad-blocking (especially for flash video based ads like youtube)
