Hello, I love reading through your blog, I wanted to leave a little comment to support you and wish you a good continuation. Wish you best of luck for all your best shahchats(java games)

Thanks for this update. I was experiencing that hanging issue and now it doesn't seem to appear. I have noticed another issue. This one is that when you close a tab, there is a lag of time before it closes. I mean earlier when we closed a tab, it closed instantly but now it seems, it takes few milliseconds to close !!

The waiting for cache footer, 2 minute hangs that cause my entire OS to freeze even on Google's own web-sites is inexcusable.This problem is an ongoing tragedy you guys can't or won"t address.
