Chrome was one of the Apps that updated when I started the Portable apps platform. I'm running from an 8gig USB 2.0 drive under Windows 8.1 will all current updates. Of the 8GB, well over 7GB are free. When I start Chrome, it lags so far behind any input that it's impossible to use. The internet is slow, but even something as simple as typing a URL takes at least 60 sec before any characters appear. Forget using a scroll bar it is many seconds before the full page is cached and the scroll is responsive. Once it does, the responsiveness is normal, but OMG, I'm an old timer and I don't recall anything this bad.
