    I have been using 10.9 for the past week or so and I am thinking of going back to 10.8 because this is not real stable. I expected that some of my applications may not function properly however I haven't really had much issue with that.

    My biggest issue is that it seems to be running a LOT slower than it ever has. I actually had to hard reset my iMac the other day because the Chrome browser froze up and I couldn't close it no matter what I did. The Activity Monitor program froze up at the same time.

    I have also been having issues with Chrome scrolling. I tried switching to Safari and it seems better but I do not enjoy that browser.

    After typing this I am thinking maybe Chrome is my only issue, is anyone else experiencing any of this?

    No offense but 10.9 is not meant for general consumption. Its a beta, given to developers to test their code and find bugs.

    Performance and stability are not really expected in betas

    Google has not had much time to test Chrome against Mavericks and fix any issues they've encountered. I would expect Chrome will be fixed before Mavericks is released.

    Like any other developer, Google has only had Mavericks Developer Previews for a few weeks. If you're having issues with Chrome on Mavericks, report them to Google.

    And Apple, submit a bug report with them as well.

    touche' I suppose it is a beta. I will submit reports asap.

    In related news, I upgraded to DP2 and it seems to be better so far. If I can reproduce I will submit the issue.

    Thanks guys!

    Chrome is working great on DP2.. at least for me!

    Overall, 10.9 is quite stable... except I can't login to iCloud for keychain access... Submitted bug report to Apple.

    iCloud Keychain problems are in the seed note, so they are aware of the issue.

    Interestingly, post reboot, I saw the Keychain box already checked... and it's working as I type.. but I tried to login again, and it still hangs with that blank grey screen pop-up.

    Hopefully DP3 will take care of this trivial, but annoying issue!

    It is hit and miss. I'm sure later builds will get it working.

    I'm loving 10.9. It's the best OS X since 10.6. I'm glad engineering is focusing on desktop/multiple display/graphics improvements. It's a bit humorous to see .Mac/MobileMe features that were removed in iCloud return (Keychain syncing, and soon iCloud Dropbox file sharing akin to iDisk). All great things, and I'm finding even the DP2 to be more stable than any 10.7/8 commercial release.

    For me, who partitioned my HD and put mavericks on the second partition, I can't go back to ML because it is much slower than mavericks :p

    Just wondering if you upgraded from Lion or Mountain Lion or did a fresh install of Mavericks.
