I just found a very useful feature in Chrome.

Open a tab and type "about:network"

Then click the "Start profiling" button. Open a few webpages (the image heavy front page of the age is a good one). Go back to the network tab and click "Show performance". A graph will display each url loaded to display the page along with how long each item took to load. The graph shows request start time and end time, showing you all the factors that went into the total display time of the page.

Another useful feature is "Start I/O tracking", which will tell you about redirections as well as listing each request made.

These things make up somewhat for the lack of some extensions that firefox has.

it's funny, the more i use Chrome (for windows), the more unstable it seems to get... crashes a lot more, can't handle sites with flash, hangs every time i close a tab... all that to say, i'm switching back to Firefox
