Sidewise often locks up my entire browser while a page is loading, page loads slow, can't scroll, change tabs, or use hangouts app without delay of 5-10 seconds or more. Issue does not occur with Sidewise disabled.
I've tried most configuration options on/off (including animations), but no change. I even tested some experimental chrome://flags options but still does it. Only other extension I'm using is uBlock Origin, which I tried toggling off too.
I can't quite narrow down exactly what pages trigger it but a lot of google pages do such as https://play.google.com/store/apps/ but it seems like Sidewise is causing some sort of locking/blocking of certain browser processes/threads while certain pages are loading.
