    Is there some other program running in the background after Chrome shuts down that handles notifications?

    I did. I usually found Chrome didn't scroll as fast as Firefox when I went to The Verge. I then "tested" this by loading the page and as soon as anything is rendered I immediately began to scroll down.

    Chrome 27 brought a 5% improvement, but nothing was mentioned about 28. If I am not mistaken, they are beginning to rollout the Blink engine.
