Also, Google Now has also been slow.
I was getting frustrated and trying to figure out what to do, because I was about ready to change phones.
In a last ditch effort I decided to dig around in the settings of Chrome for Android.
I increased the speed of my Chrome substantially and there is no longer a 10-20 second pause at launch to get it up and running!
Here is what I did.
The odd part is I never set that stupid tilt scrolling in the first place... odd.
