    Has HubPages optimised for Chrome?

    I've just been looking at Google Analytics and noticed that while load times in Internet Explorer and Firefox are OK (i.e. slow but acceptable) the load time in Chrome is nearly ten times longer

    This is rather worrying given the number of people who now use Chrome and the fact that if a website doesn't load fast:
    1) Google downgrades it
    2) people stop trying to reach it

    Do other people have the same experience re browsers? (see GA Site Speed Page Timings under 'Behaviour')

    [NOTE: My browser analysis for another site with a LOT of traffic tells me that Chrome is now the most popular browser with a third of all users. The next most popular are Safari and Firefoc and Internet Explorer is now down around 10% of all users]

    The website is not optimised by definition if it's loading 10 times slower in Chrome

    Whether something has changed in Chrome that requires an adjustment in HubPages or whether it's just a glitch I don't know - but it certainly seemed to me to be something that needed looking at.
