Google Chrome has poor performance with PDF documents

I always found opening PDF documents a drag in Internet Explorer, and just as bad in Firefox. All that waiting for Adobe Reader to load up its umpteen plugins...

But I must say that the PDF experience seems far worse in Google Chrome.

My CPU goes crazy and the browser hangs every time I try to scroll down a PDF document inside Chrome. I've already resorted to downloading the PDF first and then opening it, otherwise it's just not usable.

Hmm, wonder if anybody else has experienced this? I'll have to go check the Chrome bug list.

definitely experience the exact same thing... completely hangs up when you scroll. Seems especially problematic when I use the clickwheel.
