    Amazing!

    I play a couple of Zynga flash games on FaceBook.

    For months, I couldn't use Chromium. Flash crashed 100% of the time. Had to use Firefox.

    Now, they play just fine in Chromium (currently @ version 31).

    w00t!

    Thanks!

    Hope they come up with a 304.108 version of nvidia-settings soon.

    304.88 version doesn't seem to work well...

    Cool! I thought everyone used the “xorg crack pushers” team PPA for the new releases.

    I have never had a problem with flash on either FireFox or Chromium. I have 325.15 installed now and the PPA on Saucy since inception. Also on Raring and Quantal too.
    Never used Chromium before; didn't like the difference between that and FireFox but, now I am liking Chromium more and more.
    Although it can eat up some resources if you have several tabs open at once. Not sure if Ubuntu warned me about being short on memory but, win 7 did
    running Chrome. I had several tabs open on Chrome, Firefox was open and I switched users to look at something on my wife's account.
    When I opened a 2nd tab it warned me that it was running low on memory.

    I've also noticed that Chromium starts a different process for each tab so I can see why that would happen.

    Here's my mem usage in Chromium 31 (raw trunk build):




    Three extensions running, and two tabs open. Doesn't seem too bad.

    It was the Zynga Flash games that were bringing it down...

    Interesting. Was 325.15 causing you the problems with flash? It has never caused me any problems but the only flash I use is like on Youtube and I guess others videos on news sites. etc.
    I have opened up like 7-8 tabs and in the conky (which I thank you very much for BTW) I could see one core nearly maxing out oddly while the other 3 were not affected.

    Here's my memory usage on Chromium 28 with 7 tabs open. Not that bad either and one had a YouTube video running. This is with 325.15 too.

    Edit: need to fix something. I'll have to get back to this post.

    I dont mean to be Bold(assumeing) here but I dont think VinDSL can run the 325 driver due to hardware,
    But yes Nvidia-325 xedggers runs very good for my towers, but sadly I like VinDSL have to use the 304 dirvers,
    Nvidia 7150 onboard Laptop..

    I can understand. I also have a tower and the 325.15 driver and all the others from xorg crack pushers ppa have never had any issues.
    My son has a laptop and I know there are differences like if he starts it up on batteries it uses the integrated video card but if it's plugged in it uses his GTX 670 (I think is what he has).
    He has a beast of a laptop. The builtin speakers are even better than mine are.

    As far as my above post I will just suffice it to say that there wasn't a whole lot of difference between our memory usage with Chromium. It used a little more.
    The couple of things I don't like about Chromium vs FireFox is that it will not automatically switch to the new tab and the home button doesn't take you "home".
