    I had only recently clean-installed M.Lion. This is the first time I'm having overall sluggishness caused by Chrome. I'm not sure what the problem is. The only extensions I use on Chrome are Google Dictionary and AdBlock. There is no Flash installed on my Mac.

    When I play video (Youtube) usually on Chrome; the video lags a lot and freezes constantly between play time.

    I'm using the latest version of Chrome : "Version 22.0.1229.79"
    I've updated to ML 10.8.2.


    If anyone has a solution to this problem, I'll appreciate it very much.

    I have seen the same issue a I moved back to Safari a long time ago. I have seen a similar thing with the Skype and I stopped using that too. Perhaps a memory leak in those apps.

    Thanks. I moved from Safari to Chrome because the former was crashing most of the time. Hopefully Apple comes out with a fix for Safari 6 quickly.

    I suggest you to disable what ever the extensions you have and check if the problem still exists.

    hope someone will give you a better answer to your problem.
