I have to agree with @parislemon on this one. Chrome has become very bloated. I can see it from the amount of memory it requires just to have a few tabs open (ok, some people in the office will argue that very often I have more that “a few” tabs open, but still).
I also found that Chrome is being very aggressive with it’s caching strategy. When developing locally, it’s pretty annoying when even a hard reload will not re-fetch all resources on your page. In my experience (and I know at least a couple of people in the team with the same problem), it takes closing and re-opening Chrome to clear whatever Chrome think it should cache.
Please don’t make it go back to Firefox for everyday browsing.
