    Does anyone know if the new version of Chrome, i.e. the 64 bit one, will still kill the battery life on my SP3 ?

    The old one had the bug of using the processor all the time, didn't it ?

    Thanks

    MUI IE could learn a thing or two from Google about Chrome's swipe back feature. Super smooth. MUI IE not so much.

    I'm tracking that bug and this morning I saw an update being pushed which looks like it addresses the timer resolution (along with some other timer related issues). I guess this should become available in the Canary version at any time.

    In a positive note, Chrome 37 detects when your click a text field and the keyboard is called automatically. In a negative note a 4k video is virtually unplayable.

    Agreed that MUI IE has a terribly back-swipe; that delay before restoring the screen can be a killer (and it's so unpredictable as well). Otherwise, I've found it very efficient and an excellent browser overall vs. Chrome; I only use the latter when I need to send something to my Kindle, since there's no plugin for IE (period, not even for desktop IE).
