Forum scroll speed solution
Posted 01 December 2011 - 02:00 PM
If you are curious, check out related Google Chrome trouble tickets 102696, 104733, 105030, 103996, 95164, 575, 103386, 72553, 80507. The conclusion is the current rendering system just has a lot of problems, and there is not much we can do on our end other than stop doing several things that Chrome did once support. By using custom CSS overrides you can simply disable functionality that Chrome does not currently implement properly on your end. A lot of the screw ups, especially for Windows 7 running Chrome, seem fairly recent. You may also be be interested in issue 44390, although that was specifically for Mac versions.

•A fixed background image that does not need to be redrawn when scrolling but ironically this can cause Chrome to choke up especially if transparency will overlay it.
•Fixed position elements, or anything that touches z-indexes, can cause substantial slowdown
•Rendering and scrolling when any element is to not have a bottom border, for some strange reason, also causes slowdown. The border bug is most prominent on Windows platforms as of build 17.0.945.0 canary but does not appear on Mac variants. Twitter had this issue and tried to find out what was wrong for a while; sounds like one of the Google engineers committed a fix.
•There is a slowdown when using "blur" and some other functions
Some of these mistakes are "inherited" by Firefox as well, so using custom CSS can help there as well. IE and Opera are, ironically, your best bets for render speed.

Just because Opera has a low market share doesn't mean it is supposed to be thrown into the same shitboat as IE. Example: http://lifehacker.co...ome-11-and-more

Opera is usually the head-to-head competitor to Chrome in a lot of tests out there. And things like HWA and naturally other improvements have been made since even those benchmarks way back in March.
