For some reason my Chrome is now almost instantaneous on second and subsequent call ups. Magic as far as I can see. Old slow hard drive too. Probably fully in memory till it gets swapped out.

I'm not sure what changed other than perhaps going from Ubuntu 15.10 to 16.04, but Chromium now boots up in about 2 sec on my Mac mini, not counting the loading of "earth view from Google maps" (adds about 3 sec but is very cool!). On the other hand, Firefox was really slow (about 10 sec) until I disabled two add-ons (Ubuntu Modifications and Forecast Plus). Once I did that, FF starts up in about 3 or 4 seconds.
