    chrome goes out to lunch too often

    all too often
    chrome decides to make my hd light go on solid
    and takes minutes to do soemthing that FF used to do instantly

    i suspect it is stealign my personal info
    andor loading up more ads to show me


    is there any way to make chrome more responsive
    and stop usign so many resources for itself
    and give me a little bit more of my pc to do my things

    You didn't mention your system setup (memory, CPU, version of Windows, etc.)

    However, the number of add-ons you are using, as well as the number of open tabs when browsing, can use up resources quickly.

    If you are low on memory, a function called "paging" occurs, where items in memory are written to the hard drive.

    Take a look at how you have Chrome set up, and try disabling add-ons one at a time to see if the situation improves.

    xp pro s3
    no add ons

    firefox was fast fast fast
    and never had problems
    until it stopped working completely

    ff let me have lots of tabs open with no impact

    it is much easier to have many of them open and available
    but it does seem to happen at times even with just one
