Snippet: Chrome is Bad ☇

Shared on December 13, 2020

Loren Brichter:

Long story: I noticed my brand new 16″ MacBook Pro started acting sluggishly doing even trivial things like scrolling. Activity Monitor showed *nothing* from Google using the CPU, but WindowServer was taking ~80%, which is abnormally high (it should use <10% normally).

Doing all the normal things (quitting apps, logging out other users, restarting, zapping PRAM, etc) did nothing, then I remembered I had installed Chrome a while back to test a website.

I hope we may see more information in the coming days/weeks and it’s a silly bug. If true, I’m tired of giving Google chances to not put out sloppy, broken, probably creepy shit.
