On the Chrome topic, I do most of my work in a browser. (or uxrvt) I needed to upgrade my work laptop to 16GB ram in order to keep up with my workload. Chrome was using 7.2GB of ram and I was spending most of my SSD IOPS swapping.

I'll be very happy to see chrome both reducing CPU load and hopefully with the tab hibernation, we can see some reduced ram usage as well.
