    I just got my 13" C2D MBP this afternoon. After installing Chrome, I noticed that the two finger scroll was extremely touchy and fast. I tested it in Safari and it was much smoother, and it was much smoother and easier in the rest of the OS.

    Has anyone else had this issue where scrolling in chrome is so much faster than in other parts of the OS?

    Thanks!

    I think you posted this in wrong forum, but my MBP hasn't had that issue.

    Sorry, wasn't sure what forum to post it in. Just got my MBP today; my first multi-touch MBP. I figured this was the place that others might have the same issue and have some advice.

    I'm not really sure how to help you with the information you have provided. could you be a bit more specific please?

    Just for the record, Chrome works fine on my MBP 13" C2D.

    It was in the MBP forum. I think it was moved...?

    Two finger scroll is just very touchy and fast. If you put try to use the 2 finger scroll, the scrolling just flies, way faster than in any other apps. Changing the tracking speed to a smaller setting helps, but then it's snail slow in other parts. Right now my scrolling speed in settings is on the 3rd notch from the right, yet I can hardly control it when scrolling in Chrome. It flies!

    Oops. either way, it was moved to the Apps section now. Hopefully someone else has this issue and sees it here.

    Looks like it was an issue with the Chrome add on 'Smooth Scroll'. Having that enabled (from using it w/ Chrome on my PC) led to the super quick scroling. Uninstalling it put things back to normal.
