Choppy scrolling in Chrome

    So I've been noticing this for a month or so now, but I had been attributing it to a Chrome update. Now that Chrome (stable) has had several updates with no improvement, I'm starting to suspect it's something Oxygen OS-related. Scrolling in Chrome tends to be extremely choppy on my 6T in a way that it isn't on any of my other devices (Nexus 6P, Pixel 2). I noticed this happening more often after the 9.0.12 OOS update, I think.

    Scrolling in other apps is perfectly fine, but Chrome jerks and jumps around severely when scrolling through even relatively light web pages.

    Has anyone else been experiencing this?

    Yes, I have experienced this issue with OnePlus - and other devices. I have also experienced it on Chromebook and Windows 7, 8 and 10 at various times.

    Years ago, Chrome may have ran circles around other browsers, but not so much any more as they added everything but the kitchen sink to their browser in their quest to be one of the "big boys." I find it very glitchy these days and seldom use it.

    Have you tried this?

    1. Open Chrome and type chrome://flags in your address bar, press Enter. This will open a secret configuration page which lets you enable or disable hidden and experimental features.

    2. Scroll down until you see "Smooth Scrolling" option. It is disabled by default. Click the "Enable" option.

    3. Click "Relaunch Now."

    It's worth a shot!

    I am researching other browser because of this issue. Chrome was is and will never be smooth. I've top spec dell laptop, galaxy s9 and OP6 and it lags everywhere. I am jealous when see iPhone users around me- talking about the safari not os.

    I can highly recommend "dolphin" browser for android.
    It's fast and customizable, with little battery usage I believe.

    I used to love chrome but lately it has been rubbish and doesn't offer anything good.
    I have tried many browsers for months and settled on dolphin in the end. Firefox focus used to be good but lately it has issues with some Web sites.

    Try clearing cache for Google Chrome and then close it from background and then restart and then try it, it will be fine. And if you talk about another browser so I have tried all browser they all don't keep themselves in the memory, refresh after 10 minutes only chrome is that browser which keep its self in the memory for at least 6 to 7 hours. ok.

    Happens for me also since the Pie update. You should give Kiwi Browser a shot.
