Faster Google Chrome browser on Mac

Just tried turning off hardware acceleration in Chrome, and it improved performance on my Mac noticeably. No idea why that would improve things, but it does, for me and many others, apparently.

I also recommend disabling plugin auto-play (i.e., making Flash ask you before it runs).

...and using the extension "The Great Suspender" to suspend tabs you haven't visited in a while.
