The only way to kick it into working is to hit refresh. I get the impression that somewhere along the line Chrome is waiting for something from the website but the website has already sent it....almost a deadly embrace scenario. For example, i can call up a webpage and Chrome will just sit there with some message such as 'waiting for' etc but nothing happens. Meanwhile I can load up Safari, go to the same page and get it displayed.

Anyone else have the same issues?

Not had that problem but I recently found that one can't use it to properly administer an eBay account. Options that appear when using Firefox aren't visible with Chrome.

What options are missing?
Anything that an occasional seller might miss?

There are many differences - right from the start of selling for instance ..


Chrome


FF

... but it is different right through in all sorts of subtle and not so subtle ways. The worst is that with Chrome there seems no way to add information to a listing with bids.

I use Ubuntu - maybe it's different under other OS?
