Still so buggy on Asus Prime =( Scrolling is still choppy, rendering is slooow, have to see white screen for long time. Browsing The Verge site is the pain... Even opening new emty Tab is slow! Standard browser is much better (but sync not works on it from June), even Firefox better and more fluid on tablets. Situation has not changed since the first release. What's happend, Chrome team?!
