    Just wondering how many other people are using Chrome on their Macs?
    Ive been using it for a while now but recently it had been hogging up the cpu quite abit, I just installed an extension though called Flashblock which seems to have made it alot more reliable.
    What other extensions do fellow Chrome users use as I know there isnt as many as in Firefox?

    I use Chrome now all the time, used to use Firefox and now only rarely use it. My MacBook is pretty old but Chrome seems to hold up just fine. Although, I don't use any extensions to my knowledge. I've only had a couple instances where Chrome seems to be bogged down and I'll force-quit it. I attribute it to having 20+ tabs unused for a few days, only putting the computer to sleep in between.
    The past 6 months or so I think Chrome's been great on Mac and PC :)
