Noticed that Chrome seemed a little slow...

I just got a new update to Chrome (Version 31.0.1650.63 m) and noticed that it seems to slow down when going to some pages.  Almost like it would hang. By the way I do the majority of my Chrome browsing in 'Incognito' mode.

So after some research, I found that it might be a Privacy setting in Chrome.  Previously I had "Predict network actions to improve page load performance" checked.  I unchecked the setting that is circled very precisely in red in the screen shot below, and then closed all Chrome windows and reopened Chrome.  To perform a test, I typed bing in the address bar and hit CTRL+ENTER (cool shortcut to add the "www" and the ".com" to whatever is typed in the address bar).

Like magic it was back to the fast browsing I enjoy with Chrome.

Hope it helps you guys out.  Run wild, be free!
