There seems to a lot of dissatisfaction with Mavericks, but I'm hopeful my issue is fixable. The performance since the upgrade is horrible. Chrome hangs. Firefox doesn't seem to be much better. I need to manually quit Dropbox in order to get a single browser window to open, which ussually works after 5mins of force quitting dropbox. Obviously something is very wrong and interfering. I ran verify disk permissions and verify disk. All is well there. I updated Java and my Chrome+firefox is current. I have a MBP, with 8GB RAM. Is there an app somewhere causing trouble? How should I proceed with root cause? I perfer not to wait until Apple fixes this. My Laptop is unusable in current state. Here's data dump from EtreCheck:

Did you do a clean install instead of upgrade?

Failure to that I would downgrade to the last stable OSX you had. And wait for Apple to bugfix Mavericks.

I just did the upgrade from 10.8 to 10.9 - you know the one that Apple said is as easy as clicking a button...:)

I guess I'm looking for a quick hit fix to at least stabilize things until Apple gets their act together. Doing a "clean install" or "reverting back" to 10.8 sounds kinda scary, especially when I can't seem to muster up enough Mac power to get DropBox or Crashplan to back up things in case something breaks. I'm loosing faith in Apple lately and something breaking seems more likely.
