Xorg and the browser are swapping back and forth for the CPU and Xorg routinely hits 100% and a single view in Chrome jumps over 50%.
This is pathetic.
What's worse is that Debian has moved Xorg prior release to it's backports section. They've moved to 1.11.1 like it's some sweet release and Nvidia clearly has a poorly tested and optimized driver.
