They suggest to run chrome exe in Vista compatibility, tick the checkbox for Run this program in compatibility mode for, select Windows Vista from the drop-down menu, and then click OK


Try to add this secret flag to reduce the number of draw processes. Starts faster with it.

There are days where MSFN is nothing more than a remake of West Side Story.

I'm sorry, I don't know what that is. If it's some Western. I'm not fond of them, so no wonder I'm not familiar. Do you still have the delay issue with chrome?

Yes.  Roughly 5 to 7 seconds in Win 10 1511 (inline with XP).  Roughly 14 to 17 seconds in Win 10 1607.

First launch and first launch only coming out of hibernate or full shutdown.

I completely avoided this method and I was able to successfuly port the bleeding edge Opera 97 (Chrome 111) and I have no delays with the startup you wrote about earlier.

Screenshots with proof below. Opera was released on 06.02.2023 (yesterday) .

It is fully functional, apart from the settings page (I get the error on the screenshot when I try to open them).

Apart from that isuue I have the ability to enter the flags section, about, history and bookmarks. Lets' work together to find the cause for the settings.

I was able to discover the reason for that weird slowness you wrote about. In short, the chrome devs are mor0ns (surprise...not).

They have implemented a new crappy API that doesn't work as expected. I found it . Am I a genius, I dunno ...

Link :

Microsoft confirms that API is crap.

"Thank you for your feedback. We have identified this issue as a Windows issue."








I found the problematic script which causes this, tagging @win32, since he also might be interested!

It's just yet another bug in Chromium 111.

"Can confirm the crash at settings."

I fail to understand why do they all patch only the standard chrome, not ungoogled.

I too have this question! It seems odd. First they write they stay on older OS to be less spied on, second they port the standard Chrome/chromium, really odd.
