Submission + - Chrome browser and Microsoft's website

gksmith writes: I've been using the Chrome browser for a week, with Microsoft's site as my home page. This morning I fired up Chrome and my hard disk started going crazy. If I navigated to other sites, the hard drive continued thrashing, but closing Chrome altogether instantly silenced the hard drive. If I go to www.microsoft.com using IE or Firefox, the hard drive remains idle. I've opened Chrome several times over the last few hours and hard drive thrashing is now predictable. Anyone else see this happening? Anyone know why it would?
